Citizen complaints about suspected drug activity led Statesboro police to arrest six suspects Thursday on gun, drug and theft charges.

Just after 5 p.m., officers and detectives raided a College Lane residence, where “officers of the patrol bureau, detectives … and members of the Impact Team began investigating the complaint,” said Statesboro police Community Information Specialist Madison Warren.

Executing a search warrant, police “found marijuana and firearms in the residence. One firearm was later confirmed as stolen,” she said.

All six suspects were taken to the Bulloch County Jail and were booked on various charges. They await further court action, including bond hearings.
