Anonymous tip leads to marijuana arrest

Milton Kendrick

Marijuana, a gun and a stolen purse were found Thursday morning when police, acting on a tip, searched a Montego Way home.
Milton Kendrick, 22, who lives in the home, was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, Statesboro Public Safety Director Wendell Turner said.
An anonymous tip launched an investigation that culminated in a search warrant being executed around 6:45 a.m. Thursday. Officers from the Statesboro Police Department Crime Suppression Unit and Emergency Response Team "recovered approximately half a pound of marijuana, a large amount of cash, and a firearm," he said. 
Detective Kyle Briley, who led the investigation, said the marijuana has a street value estimated at $8,300.
Also, a purse found in a vacant bedroom in Kendrick's home was found to have been reported stolen in September, Turner said. Charges regarding that discovery are pending.
Anyone with information concerning this case is asked to contact the Statesboro Police Department at (912) 764-9911. Tips may also be texting "TIPSSPD plus your message" to 274637 (CRIMES). All information is strictly confidential.

Holli Deal Bragg may be reached at (912) 489-9414.
