Chase on Ogeechee Rd leads to large drug bust, 3 arrests

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Three people are in custody following a joint operation between the Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team and the Georgia State Patrol.

CNT says troopers tried to stop a truck that was believed to be stolen on Ogeechee Road early Sunday morning, but the driver took off.

Three people eventually got out of the truck and ran, but were quickly taken into custody.

CNT says a trafficking amount of cocaine, ecstasy, a large amount of marijuana, and items commonly associated with the distribution of controlled substances was found in the truck. Two stolen guns and more than $4,000 was also recovered.

Officials say 30-year-old Javonn Brybon, 27-year-old Hakeem Campbell, and 36-year-old Amari Sams, all of Savannah, were arrested. All three are charged with multiple felony drug, weapons and other related charges and remain in the Chatham County Detention Center.
