An agent with the drug unit in Dawson, who wished not to be named because of undercover investigations, said the arrest took place after a warrant was executed at 6:30 a.m. on Thursday at 253 Anderson St. following a weeklong investigation.

Investigators reportedly found 24 individually wrapped bags of marijuana and 17 suspected Ecstasy pills. The pills have been sent to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation lab for confirmation testing.

This can't be right, AuntieDee & Spookj6 reports that only white people deal with marijuana. There needs to be a further investigation to make sure this report is accurate.

Blacks grow it and manufacture meth too, so don't say it is just a white thing. That is truth you can believe in. The truth will set you free.

A Climax man is behind bars after deputies found hundreds of marijuana plants that he was growing in a field.

A tip led Decatur County deputies to the home of 48 year-old Phillip Byrd at 175 Kemp Road.
