  Nashville --  A two-week investigation ends with a suspected drug dealer behind bars in Berrien County.    

Anthony Williams of Tifton is charged with possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute. Drug agents with the Berrien County Sheriff's Office say they got a tip Williams would be moving drugs through the community.

They found him with more than a pound of marijuana and $800 beneath the floor of his car. 

"It has been our objective since October to make an effort to thin out some of the drug dealers. We are passionate about it now and I hope it's evident to the people and the tax payers in the community," says Berrien County Sheriff Anthony Heath.  

Heath hopes Williams might lead them to a larger stash of drugs. He could face more charges.
