THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Four other suspected pot dealers are in the Thomas County Jail Tuesday.

Narcotics agents set up surveillance in the woods near 202 Mckinley street in Thomasville then executed a search warrant after watching several suspected drug deals at the house.

Agents arrested Derrez Jackson, Terry Bryant, Bradford Hill, and Charles Crump III.

They also seized more than a pound and a half of marijuana, $4,400 in cash, and four loaded handguns.

"Convicted drug dealers sitting around with loaded firearms is a dangerous situation for us, it's a dangerous situation for them, and it's a dangerous situation for the community. So it's good to get those individuals who were denied bond and the guns off the street," said Narcotics Commander Kevin Lee.

The four suspects face a long list of charges, including possession of marijuana with intent distribute and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
