Drug bust leads to over 20 arrests in Georgia

There's always a risk of getting caught if you decide to transport or deal drugs. You might get involved for any number of reasons, from wanting more money to being coerced into helping a local gang.

If you do get caught transporting drugs, it's a serious offense. It's one you need to build a strong defense for because you could face prison time and harsh penalties.

An example of how you can get caught was recently in the news on Jan. 16. Bibb County authorities worked together with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to perform a drug bust at local hotels. Why focus there? Between January and August 2019, the Bibb County Sheriff's Office had received at least 137 calls about suspicious individuals, sex offenses, shots fired and drugs in several hotels around Macon.

The two agencies began to work together and focused on 22 hotels along the Interstate 475 and Highway 80 region. Following an investigation, the authorities were able to identify several mid-level sellers and a high-level street seller who was known as a gang member and someone who trafficked methamphetamine in the past.

By the end of the investigation, five pounds of methamphetamine was seized. Other drugs, including heroin and crack cocaine, were also collected by the authorities. Weapons were taken from the scene, which added to the individuals' charges.

In total, over 20 individuals arrested are suspected members of gangs, according to the Bibb County Sheriff's Office. They will all face penalties including the conspiracy to traffic methamphetamine.

Large-scale drug busts like this can take down entire networks. If you face an arrest or are arrested for your involvement in a drug scheme, it's important to take steps to defend yourself.
