ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Albany Dougherty Drug Unit (ADDU) seized a large amount of narcotics, guns, and counterfeit money during a drug bust.

Travis Singleton, 33, was arrested and charged with trafficking in heroin along with several other drug, gun, and traffic charges.

Drug agents seized more than 55 grams of heroin, more than 14 grams of ecstasy pills, more than one gram of methamphetamine, along with a small amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Agents also found a gun with an altered serial number and $280 in counterfeit money.

Officials said this drug bust was the conclusion of an ongoing investigation that ended with a traffic stop.

The Albany Dougherty Drug Unit explained they are expecting to see an increase in drug trafficking, and they are ramping up efforts to control the flow of narcotics in South Georgia.

"The summer time starts to bring out a lot of things so what we're going to do, we're going to adjust to those hours and the climate and we'll be here. We're going to continue do what we do. We're going to make sure that our investigators are continuing to do what they need to do to take search warrants and get this type of product off the streets," said ADDU Captain George Camp.

Albany Dougherty drug agents said the total street value of the drugs and counterfeit money came to more than $23,000.

A local secret service is assisting them with the counterfeit money investigation.
