Tift County - - Several South Georgia law enforcement agencies continue to search for a man in Tift County in connection with an undercover drug operation.

Thursday morning, deputies arrested one of two men they had been looking for since Wednesday night. They found the man walking near some woods.

Officers brought out extra staff, helicopters and K-9 units to help search. The other suspect is still on the loose. It all began around 8 o'clock Wednesday night.  

"A manhunt has been going on since that time, it ensued throughout the night and into the next afternoon. At this point, we did make one arrest about 9 o'clock Thursday morning, the second suspect remains at large, says David Haire of the Tift County Sheriff's Office.

The second suspect is a black male, approximately 5 feet 9 inches tall. He weighs 160 pounds. He was wearing a white t-shirt, short pants and short dreadlocks.

The Tift County Sheriff's Office won't give us the name of either suspect, but if you have helpful information, they want you to call 911.
