Albany police arrest four adults, one juvenile on drug charges

ALBANY -- Following up on a search warrant executed by the Albany Police Department, drug investigators charged four adults and one juvenile with felony drug violations, said Albany-Dougherty Drug Unit officials.

"After the Albany police executed a search warrant, they found drugs and called us to assist," said drug unit Major Bill Berry. "We took care of the drug charges."

Carlets Washington, 37, Anthony Hawkins, 19, Bobby Davis, 19, and Christopher Davis, 17, all of Albany, are in Dougherty County Jail charged with possession with intent to distribute cocaine and marijuana, a jail spokeswoman said.

In addition, those arrested also face charges of possession of cocaine and marijuana with intent to distribute within 1,000 feet of a park, said Dan McMullen, drug unit investigator.

The juvenile's name could not be released, but he is in the Regional Youth Detention Center, McMullen said.

"They had 6.4 grams of crack and powder cocaine," McMullen said. "And they had 85.4 grams of marijuana."

The street value of the drugs was put at $600 for the cocaine and $850 for the marijuana by the drug unit.

The drugs were confiscated along with around $1,000 worth of stolen merchandise found at a 1309 Society Ave. residence Thursday when Albany police executed a search warrant based on a resident's tip.

Albany police have not yet charged the same men in connection with the stolen merchandise, according to a police spokeswoman. The case remains under investigation.
