DAWSON, GA (WALB) - Terrell County Sheriff's Deputies made their biggest drug bust of the year, but they got much more than drugs.
A simple theft investigation led to the seizure thousands of dollars worth of drugs, Moonshine, stolen tools and more.
Deputies showed off their haul exclusively to WALB News Ten's Tayleigh Davis. Terrell County Sheriff's deputies found more tools than most people would see in a typical garage. That's not all. 12 half pints of Moonshine sat in 56-year-old Gregory Kelly's Dawson home Wednesday night. It's the first still Sheriff John Bowens has found in nearly 10 years.
"The moonshine surprised me because we hadn't seen that in years," said Sheriff Bowens. "It's surprising to be in one residence. It's quite a few tools for one person to have too."
Investigators found more than 100 items including tools, a flat screen TV and $400 worth of marijuana and $160 worth of cocaine.
Deputies wanted to question Kelly about a water tank stolen from Bob Perry's property in Bronwood Monday after neighbors recognized Kelly's truck. Wednesday morning, police pulled him over and found he was hauling more than $300 worth of scrap metal in A trailer behind his Nissan truck.
"I don't like anybody stealing from anybody and it's good to know he's off the street now," said Perry.
Along with Moonshine, deputies seized weapons, drugs, and tools from kelly's Home Wednesday night. They also found $2,500 in his Ford F-150 along with another trailer that he used to haul potting mix which sits near the grow lights and bags of marijuana. Perry is relieved deputies caught the man who may have stolen from him.
Police believe Kelly stole the tools and scrap metal to fund his drug operation. Kelly is in the Terrell County jail with a long list of charges including manufacturing marijuana, illegal possession of untaxed alcohol, and possession of a gun during the commission of a felony.
If you think Kelly has items that belong to you, call the sheriff's office at 229-995-4488.
