Joint Investigation Ends in Large Drug And Guns Seizure

Posted: Updated:

Two persons are in custody following a joint investigation conducted by the Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team (CNT) and the Savannah Chatham Metropolitan Police Department.              

Shortly after noon Friday, Metro Police responded to a call for assistance in Westlake Apartments.  There, Officers were advised unauthorized persons were residing at one of the apartments.  During the eviction, Officers smelled a strong odor of marijuana inside the apartment and located a person hiding in one of the bedrooms.  Also found was an assault rifle and a bag of marijuana.  The apartment was secured by Officers and both Metro Police Detectives and CNT Agents responded to the scene. 

CNT with the assistance of Metro Police Detectives conducted a search of the apartment which resulted in the seizure of four handguns and approximately six pounds of marijuana.  Also found was more than 1,300 rounds of ammunition for the assault rifle.  In all, five guns and approximately seven pounds of marijuana were found. 

CNT arrested 20-year-old Tashay Jenkins who the apartment was leased to and 17-year-old Antwan Bush.  Both persons were charged with numerous felony related charges to include Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Distribute, Possession of Firearms During the Commission of a Crime and Possession of Tools for the Commission of a Crime.  Jenkins and Bush are being held at the Chatham County Detention Center and are expected to be arraigned in the Recorder's Court of Chatham County, GA on Monday. 

The investigation is ongoing and additional charges and arrests are possible.
