Statesboro-Bulloch Crime Suppression Team members arrested three men Tuesday on drug charges after an investigation regarding suspected illegal narcotic sales.

Officers "began looking into suspected drug activity at an apartment in the 111 South Apartment complex on Rucker Lane" in December, Bulloch County Sheriff Lynn Anderson said in a news release issued Thursday. "Purchases of illegal drugs from the apartment led to the issuance of arrest warrants" for the suspects.

Zane Patrick Cobb, 21, of Rucker Lane, was charged with three counts of sale of marijuana, unlawful use of communications facilities, marijuana possession with intent to distribute and tampering with evidence.

While serving arrest warrants for Cobb, officers "also discovered other drugs and drug-related objects in the apartment," Anderson said.

Lavelle Ronnie Lawton, 19, of Rucker Lane, and Curtis John Hamlett, 24, also of Rucker Lane, were also arrested based on those findings.

Lawton was charged with possession/use of a drug related object while Hamlett was charged with possession of a schedule IV controlled substance and marijuana possession, according to jail records.

All three were transported to the Bulloch County Jail, where they subsequently posted bond, Anderson said.
