Baby injured in drug sweep arrest
Partnership investigation nets suspected meth dealers
An infant was injured when a drug-trafficking suspect fled from law enforcement during a recent multicounty drug sweep, but deputies apprehended the man, and the baby was taken to a hospital for treatment. During the roundup of several drug-trafficking suspects that was part of a weekslong investigation, Roberto Rashan Blackmon, 34, of Lee Street in Brooklet, attempted to escape arrest by running out the back door of his home with the baby in his arms, said Bulloch County Sheriff Lynn Anderson. The infant's head slammed into the door as Blackmon fled, Anderson said.
