Drug agent needed in Thomasville

Drug agent needed in Thomasville

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Thomas County and the City of Thomasville are looking to fill an open spot in their drug division.

The Drug Division is made up of officers from the police department and sheriff's office.

Sheriff Carlton Powell says since the police department may not be able to send one of their officers, that he will send a deputy to fill the position.

 He hopes that this will help move drugs off of the street. "Drugs are such a source of not only drug trafficking but they're the source of an awfully lot of other crimes that we have going on," said Thomas County Sheriff Carlton Powell.

Sheriff Powell also asked the County Commissioners and City Council yesterday if they have enough room in the budget to add an additional drug agent.
