The Murray County Sheriff’s Office arrested three people after a multi-agency undercover narcotics investigation resulted in the seizure of more than seven pounds of methamphetamine at two locations in Murray County.
The total amount of drugs seized makes it one of the largest drug busts ever in Murray County.
MCSO detectives – as part of the FBI’s Safe Streets Task Force and along with investigators from the Chatsworth Police Department, Dalton Police Department and the Georgia Division of Community Supervision – conducted simultaneous searches at two different locations in Murray County, seizing three vehicles and more than $12,000 in cash.
“The sheriff, as proactive as he is as far as combating drugs in our community, gave our investigators the leeway to run every lead down regarding this particular case. And it ultimately wound up in the seizure of more than seven pounds of methamphetamine, getting multiple drug traffickers off our streets, and making our community a safer and better place to live,” said Chief Deputy Jimmy Davenport.
