Sheriff Chris Prine, Sheriff Harrell Reid and Sheriff Randy Courson have released the following statement;

A joint investigation between the Echols County Sheriff’s Office, Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, and the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office culminated last night with the arrest of Jimmy Lamar Tucker and Jimmy Cecil Davis for their connection in the trafficking of cocaine.

Investigators from these agencies learned that persons were possibly transporting narcotics from a location in Texas to the South Georgia and North Florida area intended for distribution. Cooperatively, through investigation the pair were identified and located when they returned to Hamilton County.

The pair, who were driving separate vehicles, were stopped in Hamilton County on CR-143 and during the traffic stop a narcotic detecting K-9 sniffed the exterior of the vehicle and indicated a positive alert. A search of one of the vehicles resulted in the recovery of almost a kilo of cocaine, valued at $70,000.00.

Deputies and investigators also located a handgun in the possession of Jimmy Tucker. Investigators were able to confirm that Jimmy Tucker and Jimmy Davis were traveling together although they were in separate vehicles.

Both Jimmy Tucker and Jimmy Davis were transported to the Hamilton County Jail where they have remained.
