He's been arrested 11 times in Chatham County already, now the Counter Narcotics Team needs your help tracking down the man known as 'fresh".

"(He is) One of the biggest threats in terms of drug trafficking in Chatham County," said Gene Harley, Asst. Deputy Director of CNT.

Omar Griffin, also known as "Fresh", was one of the leaders of a massive drug operation just busted in Chatham County.

Operation Snow Plow netted 25 kilos of cocaine, 40 pounds of marijuana and 9 suspects. It was the largest seizure of its kind in County history.

The only thing that stops agents from closing this case, a man CNT and police have chased for years.

"I've been with CNT 13 years and way back 13 years ago we were chasing Omar Griffin," remembers Harley. "Then and throughout that time he's gone up through the reins then and become a bigger and bigger drug dealer."

Griffin is 5'8", weighs 165 lbs. He may have changed his hair length and appearance. 

This convicted felon who has been arrested 11 times in Savannah, and is considered armed and dangerous.

"We feel very strongly he's not currently in this area," says Harley. "We do believe people in this area know his whereabouts. Which are either in the Atlanta area of in the Texas area. Or he may have fled the country." 

 If you can help CNT find where Omar "Fresh" Griffin may be hiding, call Crimestoppers right away at (912) 234-2020.

 Remember, if your tip leads to an arrest, you could be eligible for a cash reward.

"He is someone who is a menace to society and someone we need to get off the streets," says Harley.
