Investigators raid Lanier and Clinch

LANIER COUNTY, GA (WALB) - An undercover drug string puts more than 20 behind bars in two South Georgia Counties.

14 people were arrested in Clinch County and eight were arrested in Lanier County. These arrests resulted from an eight month investigation by the GBI's State Drug Task Force and the South Georgia Drug Task Force.

Investigators targeted the street level narcotic distribution of crack cocaine, powder cocaine, ecstasy, and marijuana. 15 others are still wanted from both counties.

The GBI's State Drug Task Force is in danger of being cut as a result of the six-percent state-mandated budget cut. And officers say this would make it a lot more difficult to get drugs of the streets.
