    The Statesboro-Bulloch Crime Suppression Team (CST) made five arrests on drug charges this week, according to a press release from the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office.

On Monday, a search warrant was executed at 110 St. Charles Place Apartments on Lanier Drive for drug sales, the second search warrant served at that address in the past month.

While serving the latest warrant, CST investigators arrested Victor Jerome Blaney, 45, of Lanier Drive, for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. A quantity of marijuana, packaging materials and smoking devices also were seized. Blaney, who was already out on bond and on probation, was transported to the Bulloch County Jail where he is currently being held pending a court appearance.

Also on Monday, investigators with CST served a search warrant at 10 Stadium Place Apartments for drug sales. Investigators located Eric Rich, 38, of Lanier Drive, as he was attempting to flush a large bag of marijuana. However, Rich clogged the toilet and the evidence was recovered by officers.

Rich physically struggled with investigators but was taken into custody and charged with felony obstruction of an officer, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and tampering with evidence (felony).

While investigators were serving the warrant, other CST members stopped a vehicle that was suspected of having just purchased narcotics from Rich. Both of the occupants, Taivez Holloway, 30, of Knight Drive in Statesboro, and Fontarian Deonta Harlie, 24, of Cedar Creek Road in Claxton, were arrested and charged with possession of marijuana (misdemeanor). Two small children were in the vehicle at the time of the drug transaction and eventually were turned over to a family member.

Then on Tuesday, after conducting surveillance on a suspected drug dealer, CST investigators stopped Kelvin Antwone Anderson, 36, of Boggs Street in Claxton, after he was believed to have sold cocaine to another man. Anderson was attempting to leave the Statesboro Mall at the time of the traffic stop, and during this stop, a sizeable amount of cocaine and approximately $600 in cash was located.

Anderson was placed under arrest and charged with the sale of cocaine and possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute. Anderson's vehicle was impounded to await forfeiture procedures, and he was transported to the Bulloch County Jail to await further legal action.
