Federal detainers placed

September 08, 2005

Thomasville, Georgia-- Four men are facing federal drug charges in Thomas County.

Federal detainers were put on Preston Clayton, and Lemont Burkes on Wednesday. Hiyata Cochran, and James Bushware were indicted earlier.

Drug agents have been investigating the men for about three-years. "We only investigate the higher end, which means they're selling large quantities of crack cocaine. We try to identify a sale and work on that sale at that time. Then, we move on to another sale," says Thomasville / Thomas County Drug Squad Commander, Kevin Lee.

Agents are still searching for Roderick Curry. They're also looking for the ringleader in Florida.
