Metter Police: Multi-agency Investigation Ends With Drug Bust

Posted: Updated:
METTER, GA -

According to the Metter Police Department:  On Monday, September 23, 2013, a search warrant was executed and drug arrest made in Metter following a multi-agency investigation.  The Metter Police Department working with the Tri-Circuit Multi-jurisdictional Drug Task Force, the Candler County Sheriff's Office, and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation arrested Harace Kwama Fielder, 28, of Metter and charged him with Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Distribute, Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Distribute Within 1000 feet of Public Housing, and Tampering with Evidence.

Metter Police Chief Dennis Nelson said, "We truly appreciate the efforts of the law enforcement officers involved in this investigation to help make Metter a safer place, as well as the valued assistance of our partners with the Metter Housing Authority."  "Most importantly, we thank our concerned citizens who continue to provide us with information because without them illegal drug operations like this one would continue," Chief Nelson added.

The case is still under investigation and possible arrests are pending.  Anyone having any additional information on this case is asked to contact Investigator Justin Wells at 912-685-2190 or jwells@metterpd.com.
