TCSO, TPD joint SWAT team arrest 6 following drug bust
THOMAS COUNTY, Ga. (WCTV) - The Thomas County Sheriff’s Office and Thomasville Police Department joint SWAT team arrested six and seized two pounds of drugs Wednesday, according to a post on TCSO’s Facebook page on Friday.
Tovaris “Bud” Grant, 47, was under surveillance over the last two months for selling synthetic marijuana and molly, according to TCSO. Deputies watched Grant sell drugs from his home and cars and even purchased them from him on “multiple occasions.”
Narcotics/Vice agents with the Thomas County SWAT Team, Thomasville Criminal Investigations Division, Thomasville Police Department, Thomas County Sheriff’s Office and Boston Police Department carried out search warrants on Lucy Street at two neighboring addresses.
Narcotics agents found 38.7 grams of synthetic marijuana in Grant’s car, which was parked outside of the Lucy Street residence. They also recovered 0.6 grams of molly, a .22-caliber rifle and an airsoft BB gun, which was posed as a real gun, TCSO said.
Jaquez Miley, 24, lived next door to Grant and also had a separate charge. Narcotics agents found drug paraphernalia and more molly at his home.
Grant is charged with trafficking in a schedule I substance (spice), three counts of a possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony, three counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a schedule I substance (molly).
Miley, Bielfeldt, Crimley, Baker and Hill are facing charges ranging from possession of firearm by a convicted felon, trafficking spice and possession of drug-related objects. They were arrested and are in police custody as of Friday.
Because of the amount of drugs and firearms involved, TCSO said that the case most likely will be turned into a federal case.
