Seven men face federal drug charges after a two-year investigation by numerous law enforcement agencies.

Michael Moore, United States Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia, says the warrants stem from a two year narcotics investigation initiated by the ATF and GBI Sylvester with the assistance of the United States Attorney's Office for the Middle District of Georgia.

The investigation uncovered a major drug trafficking organization responsible for transporting multi kilograms of powder cocaine, crack cocaine, and firearms throughout the southwest Georgia area. 

The following were arrested on federal arrest warrants and are in federal custody awaiting bond hearings scheduled on November 13, 2013:

 

  •             Toney Ricardo Mosley, age 44, of Albany, GA, charged with Conspiracy to Possess with Intent to Distribute;

 

  •             Montravis Montez Luke, age 29, of Albany, GA, charged with Conspiracy to Possess with Intent to Distribute,             Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon;

 

  •             Joe Lewis Guest III, age 26, of Albany, GA, charged with Conspiracy to Possess with Intent to Distribute;

 

  •             Timothy Lemond Johnson, age 41, of Albany, GA, charged with Conspiracy to Possess with Intent to Distribute;

 

  •             Ontario Deshone Watson, age 40, of Dawson, GA, charged with Conspiracy to Possess with Intent to Distribute;

 

  •             Darian Jay Gillison, age 36, of Albany, GA, charged with Conspiracy to Possess with Intent to Distribute;

 

  •             Kenneth Fairbanks, age 39, of Dawson, GA, charged with Conspiracy to Possess with Intent to Distribute.

 

 The case was investigated by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI), Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), Georgia State Patrol (GSP) Post 40, Albany Probation, and Albany Police Department and is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Leah McEwen.
