Sheriff: Tifton Drugs is focus of raid

TIFTON, GA (WALB) -

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation spent hours at Tifton Drugs in Tifton, removing loads of plastic containers from the business.

The store stayed open throughout the day as investigators went in and out, carrying several loads of the plastic containers and boxes to trucks.

Authorities began the raid at daybreak Thursday morning. They did not reveal what they were removing from the store.

In a statement late Thursday afternoon, Tift County Sheriff Gene Scarborough confirmed that Tifton Drugs is the target of the investigation.

Tifton Drugs shares a building with the Medicine Man's Corner, but the owner of the Medicine Man, Mark McLean, says his business is not being investigated.

The Sheriff also said that the Drug Enforcement Agency along with the GBI were handling the investigation.

Investigators were at the scene for at least 6 hours.

Tifton Drugs posted on their Facebook page, that they were open for business as usual. An employee was seen inside stocking shelves and going about their routine.

But one point, the doors were locked with a Tift County Deputy standing by the door, letting only a few people inside to pick up prescriptions.
