Savannah Police Find Guns and Drugs in Two Arrests

A persistent Crime Suppression Unit sergeant and a suspect prone to running from police combined for a double arrest and the seizure of dangerous weapons and illegal substances Thursday.

   Daniel Marcus Hunter, 32, and Isadore Johnson III, 26, were taken into custody after the detective pursued Hunter into a house in the 200 block of West Street.

   The sergeant from the Downtown Precinct had recognized Hunter walking in west Savannah as the subject of a contempt of court warrant just after noon. When he attempted to talk to him, Hunter ran and the detective saw him enter the house on West Street.

   After securing backup and permission from the homeowner to search the house, he found both Hunter and Johnson and the guns and drugs. Johnson told officers the guns and drugs -- more than a pound of marijuana -- belonged to him. The guns included two AK47 assault rifles. One weapon had been reported stolen in Garden City in 2011.

   Johnson was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of a drug related object, theft by receiving stolen property, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of firearms in the commission of a crime.

   Hunter, who has been charged with obstruction of a law enforcement officer seven times in the past, was charged with obstruction again, along with the contempt of court charge.
