A juvenile and three adults from Millen are behind bars after Statesboro Police determined they were involved in illegal narcotic sales, said the department's criminal investigation division commander.
    " Investigation revealed street level drug sales were being conducted from both inside and outside ( a West Inman Street residence)," said Capt. L. C. Williams.
    A 15-year-old juvenile was arrested on drug charges and is being held at Claxton Regional Youth Detention Center, he said.  Three others - Kendall Cooper, 21; Tommy Williams, 21; and Pierre Coney, 24, all of Millen, were also arrested, charged with trafficking cocaine, possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, he said.
    Friday, Statesboro Police detectives Kevin Wadley, Robert Bryan and Capt. Wendell Turner, along with K-9 Sgt. Erk McCurdy, Cpl. Kevin Weatherly and officers Larry Futch and Eric Short all executed a search warrant at the West Inman Street location, finding and seizing about 74.38 grams of both powder and crack cocaine as well as 21.37 grams of marijuana, Williams said. Officers also discovered an undisclosed amount of cash.
    Cooper, Coney and Williams are being held without bond, according to Bulloch County Jail records.
