Three people are in custody after Chatham-Savanah Counter Narcotics Team agents conducted a search of two hotel rooms at the Econo Lodge hotel located at 500 East Highway 80 in Pooler.
CNT arrested 31-year-old Norman “Panama Jack” Overton-Lane of Savannah, 20-year-old Amber “Lola Bunnii” Balentine of Richmond Hill, and 24-year-old Heather “Shyan” Smith of Ellabell.
The search resulted in the seizure of controlled substances, items commonly associated with drug use and distribution, items commonly associated with prostitution and various weapons.
Both Balentine and Smith were charged with prostitution, a misdemeanor in Georgia. Overton-Lane was charged with human trafficking, pimping, and possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime.
Overton-Lane was denied bond Friday. He was arrested in June by SCMPD for various felony charges to include sale of a controlled substance, possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime and pimping.
