Albany--The owner of the V-12 nightclub in East Albany is one of six South Georgians arrested in Jacksonville, Florida Wednesday.
Drug agents say they watched them sell cocaine, that was worth hundreds of thousands of dollars on the street.
Twenty-five-year-old Robert Rushing is from Ft. Gaines, but also has an Albany address. He is one of Six South Georgians in the Jacksonville, Florida jail charged with drug trafficking.
The owner of the V-12 Nightclub, Rushing, and five people from Fort Gaines were arrested Wednesday morning about 9:00.
GBI agents worked with Jacksonville Sheriff's Investigators on the drug deal, that took place outside a motel on J. Turner Butler Boulevard. Police say they watched a woman in a car sell four kilos of cocaine to Rushing and two other men.
They followed the woman to another motel next door, and found 13 more kilos of cocaine. One hundred thousand dollars in cash was also seized.
Also arrested with Rushing were Adrian Walker, Willie Davis, Willnett Wright, Santana Ervin, and Morris Jackson, all of Ft. Gaines.
All are being held in the Jacksonville Jail on drug charges. Drug agents say the cocaine is worth about $20,000 wholesale, but on the street is worth hundreds of thousands.
Albany Dougherty Drug Unit agents say Rushing recently applied for a liquor license for the V-12 nightclub. Agents say they have no evidence that any drug deals were being made at that club.
