BULLOCH CO., GA (WTOC) -

Investigators with the Statesboro-Bulloch Crime Suppression Team have made several arrests on Monday and Tuesday.

On Monday, investigators responded to a residence in the 300 block of P.W. Clifton Road near the Leerfield Community after several complaints about drugs in the area.

The complaints were about the possible manufacture of methamphetamine at the location. After speaking with the property owner, investigators found all of the necessary items to make meth. All of the items were safely removed and William Richard West, Jr., 50, was charged with one count of criminal attempt to manufacture methamphetamine.

CST investigators then served a search warrant on Tuesday at an apartment in The Avenue at Southern on Georgia Avenue in Statesboro. Marijuana and stolen property were found at the location and Brandon Brantley, 18, was charged with two counts of sale of marijuana, one count of possession with intent to distribute marijuana, one count of possession/use of a drug related object, one count of theft by conversion and one count of misdemeanor obstruction of an officer. Brantley was also wanted by the Effingham County Sheriff's Office.

CST investigators also received information on Tuesday that a female corrections officer at Georgia State Prison in Reidsville was planning to buy marijuana and smuggle it into the prison to be sold to inmates.

Bulloch County Sheriff's Office and Statesboro Police Dept. investigators stopped Jocelyn Miranda Fedon, 22, and found a large quantity of marijuana in her vehicle. Fedon was arrested and charged with one count of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.

The Georgia Dept. of Corrections and supervisors at the Georgia State Prison were notified of the arrest and are investigating.
