The Butts County Sheriff’s Office Counter-Narcotics Division closed a one-year investigation this past Monday. Sheriff Gary Long said agents conducted a undercover investigation into the distribution of methamphetamine at a location on Forrest Avenue in Jackson. The investigation revealed the occupants at the Forrest Avenue home were operating a multi-county methamphetamine distribution ring.

The Sheriff also aid the drugs were distributed in Butts, Monroe, Pike, Henry, Clayton and Spalding counties.  

He identified those arrested as William David Carter of Jackson, Anthony Craig Scott of Jackson, Brent Bruce of Riverdale, Victoria Winters of Jackson and Amanda Chambers of Jackson.

Agents searched the Forrest Avenue home around 1 a.m. Monday and found more than 6 ounces of methamphetamine, a gallon of GHB, also known as the date rape drug, multiple hits of LSD, marijuana, prescription pills and anabolic steroids.

The Sheriff added Taking down this distribution ring, we have greatly reduced the methamphetamine flow not only throughout our county but many others.  I will see that anyone that thinks Butts County is a safe haven for the distribution of illegal narcotics will be identified, investigated and arrested. I will see that strong justice is served. I want to commend my entire Counter-Narcotics Division and the C.A.G.E Team for their outstanding work and their relentless pursuit to rid our county of illegal narcotics and its dealers. There are more arrest to follow related to this investigation. Said Sheriff Long”
