ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Federal Prosecutors in Albany just outlined an elaborate drug operation that spanned from Atlanta to Florida. Nineteen indictments were announced in federal court in Albany Thursday morning.
While raiding homes of suspects in this drug case, investigators uncovered a dog fighting ring in Seminole County.
The 19 indicted in federal court are charged with distributing cocaine and crack cocaine. A total of 27 people have been arrested.
WALB's Jim Wallace and Stephen Abel will have team coverage from Donalsonville and Albany on this story this evening.
Security firm Norred & Associates and Investigator Chuck Simmons issued this news release:
Six search warrants were executed today by members of the South Georgia Drug Task Force in conjunction with the Donaldson Police Department for suspected drug trafficking around Donalsonville, Georgia.
Norred & Associates, an Atlanta-based private security and executive protection firm, had previously conducted a dog fighting investigation involving the same suspects and alerted police about possible dog fighting in November of 2010.
At least 12 dogs suspected of being used for dog fighting activity were found today by police, and the information Norred & Associates provided is part of an ongoing investigation with dog fighting charges pending.
Norred & Associates in conjunction with the Atlanta Humane Society are coordinating efforts to vet and rescue the dogs.
Greg Norred, CEO and Founder of Norred & Associates, provides his company's time and resources pro bono to investigate suspected dog fighting. Having facilitated over 30 raids to date with over 650 dogs rescued,
Norred encourages citizens to report suspected dog fighting and animal cruelty throughout the Southeast by calling the company's private, confidential dog fighting tips hotline: 1.877.215.2250.
