Two men suspected of intent to distribute drugs are behind bars after law enforcement agents intercepted a package slated for delivery to their home, authorities said.
The package addressed to a Park Place apartment contained "a quantity" of marijuana, and a subsequent search of the apartment yielded LSD, according to a news release issued Tuesday by Bulloch County Sheriff Lynn Anderson. Members of the Statesboro-Bulloch Crime Suppression Team seized the package Monday, Anderson said.
"The package was claimed by Zachary Tyler ...who was found to reside with his brother, Nathaniel Tyler," Anderson said. "Investigators developed probable cause to search the apartment in which the Tylers resided and discovered quantities of marijuana, LSD, and other drug paraphernalia."
Zachary Tyler, 21, of Lanier Drive, was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession/use of a drug-related object.
Nathaniel Tyler, 20, of Lanier Drive, was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of LSD with intent to distribute, and possession/use of a drug-related object.
Both were transported to the Bulloch County Jail pending further judicial action.
"The Lanier Drive corridor is one of several focus areas in Bulloch County where the Crime Suppression Team is concentrated, based on citizen complaints, crime statistics, and proximity to GSU campus," the sheriff said.
