COFFEE CO., GA (WALB) -

Seven people are in custody, and police are looking for one man after a two year drug trafficking investigation in Coffee County.

According to the sheriff's department, several agencies worked together and arrested six people starting Wednesday morning.

  • Samuel Scott Cade of Douglas, 37
  • Antwan Hunt of Broxton, 37
  • Craig Moses James of Douglas, 46

The seventh person, Rodriguez Sedon Carter, 45, was arrested later in the day in Atlanta.

All suspects had a first appearance in Waycross Thursday morning, and everyone but Tanksley was denied bond.
