Camilla drug dealers get 20 years
The federal courthouse in Albany is not on a closure list.

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Donterius Toombs, age 33 and Stephon Williams, also known as "Corndog," "Lieutenant," and "L.T.", age 50, from Camilla, were sentenced to 240 months for conspiracy to distribute cocaine and crack cocaine in Albany Federal Court.

In August 2012, the court authorized a wiretap of a phone used by Curtis Bernard Donaldson, also known as "Thug." Donaldson was then a drug dealer operating out of the Camilla, Georgia area. His "self-proclaimed" lieutenant was Mr. Williams, a former police officer, and his lower level drug dealers included Mr. Toombs.

Donaldson's operation produced two types of crack cocaine - "straight drop" or "glass" and "whip" which produce a greater weight of crack than others from the same amount of powder. Mr. Williams and Mr. Toombs each have prior convictions for drug distribution. The two were convicted at trial in November 2014.

"As long as drug dealers put their poison on our streets and in our communities, we are going to use all of our resources to make sure that they end up in jail," United States Attorney Michael Moore said. "Whether we take them down as a complete organization or one at a time, the Middle District of Georgia is a safer place with fewer dealers on the street and more in the jail."

The case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration in Columbus, Pelham Police Department, Cairo Police Department and the Thomas County Vice-Narcotics Squad.

Assistant United States Attorney Leah McEwen prosecuted the case on behalf of the Government.
