SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Four suspects have been charged and others are being sought after Central Precinct Patrol and Crime Suppression Unit officers joined the Savannah-Chatham Metro Police Dept. SWAT team in raiding three houses Friday.

Three men and one woman were among 10 people that were detained after officers raided houses in the Cann Park area at 1:30 p.m.

The raid followed a six-week investigation by the precinct's Tactical Investigations Unit that stemmed from citizen complaints of violence and drug activity in the area. More arrests are anticipated.

Central Precinct Commaned Capt. DeVonn Adams said in a statement, "This was a significant action that helped us continue to clean up criminal and drug activity that plagues neighborhoods that deserve better. These individuals have been working in this area for some time and residents have suffered because of it. With their help, we have made a major dent in this operation and taken some dangerous individuals off our streets."

Jessie McGee, 29, was charged with the sale of a controlled substance, attempt to violate the Georgia Controlled Substance Act and possession of a controlled substance with the intent to distribute. McGee is a three-time convicted felon.

Travis Young, 32, was charged with two counts of sale of a controlled substance.

Stephanford Hall, 38, was charged with two counts of sale of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute.
