Five people have been arrested following a joint investigation between the Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team (CNT) and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

Earlier this year, CNT and DEA identified a group of individuals suspected of selling large amounts of OxyContin, an addictive opioid-based medication. Through the investigation, agents determined the group was selling the prescription medication throughout Chatham, Bryan, and Effingham counties.

Between August and November of this year, agents arrested five people in connection with the operation: 41-year-old Jason Toledo of Richmond Hill, 36-year-old Rebecca Hillis of Savannah, 28-year-old Justin Gordon of Savannah, 38-year-old Summer Boyles of Brooklet, and 36-year-old Frank “Pork Chop” Haws of Atlanta.

The investigation is ongoing and additional arrests are expected.
