    A call about a domestic disturbance on New Year's Eve led local law enforcement officers to the discovery of several drugs at an off-campus apartment near Georgia Southern University.

    Four suspects, allegedly gang members — Amoin Dunbar, 29, of Savannah; Quinton Glover, 22, of Savannah; Mikail Jackson, 24, of Statesboro Place Circle; and Robert Mutcherson, 34, of Pembroke — were arrested after officers found cocaine, marijuana and MDVP, also known as "molly," Bulloch County sheriff's Chief Deputy Jared Akins said in a press release issued Tuesday.

    Statesboro police officers received a call about a domestic disturbance at Campus Evolution Apartments on Statesboro Place Circle on Dec. 31.

    "Upon arriving, officers began speaking with the residents of the apartment and immediately detected an odor of marijuana," Akins said. "(They) observed several drug related objects inside the residence, and observed the residents acting suspiciously."

    The officers contacted Statesboro-Bulloch Crime Suppression Team investigators, who at the time were working on a burglary prevention detail with Georgia Southern University police officers, Bulloch County sheriff's deputies and other Statesboro police officers, he said.

    Investigators obtained a search warrant for the residence and found suspects for whom the CST was "already actively working a narcotics case," he said. The suspects "were also known participants in a criminal street gang."

    A search of the apartment revealed more than a quarter of a pound of powder cocaine, as well as crack cocaine, marijuana, a handgun and more than an ounce of MDPV.

    Dunbar is charged with trafficking in cocaine, trafficking in MDPV, possession of a schedule IV controlled substance, possession with intent to distribute a schedule I or II controlled substance, felony marijuana possession, possession of a firearm or knife during the commission of a crime, felony tampering with evidence and possession/use of a drug-related object.

    Glover also faces those charges, in addition to charges of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and participating in criminal street gang activity.

    Jackson is also charged with participating in criminal street gang activity, along with trafficking in cocaine, trafficking in MDPV, possession of a schedule IV controlled substance, possession with intent to distribute a schedule I or II controlled substance, felony marijuana possession, possession of a firearm or knife during the commission of a crime, felony tampering with evidence and possession/use of a drug-related object.

    Mutcherson is charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, as well as participating in criminal street gang activity, trafficking in cocaine, trafficking in MDPV, possession of a schedule IV controlled substance, possession with intent to distribute a schedule I or II controlled substance, felony marijuana possession, possession of a firearm or knife during the commission of a crime, felony tampering with evidence and possession/use of a drug-related object.

            All four suspects were taken to the Bulloch County Jail, where they await further court appearances, Akins said.
