Drug team expects arrests soon

MOULTRIE — Drug agency officials expect to make arrests in connection with cocaine and marijuana found Monday night in a Moultrie residence by police investigating a domestic violence case.

Moultrie Police Department reports said that an officer following up at about 8:50 p.m. on an earlier report of domestic violence saw marijuana on a coffee table in the living room.

“When they got there they observed some drugs in the home,” said Cmdr. Steve Exum of the Moultrie-Colquitt Drug Enforcement Team. “They got a search warrant.”

The search warrant turned up about a half ounce of cocaine and more than a pound of marijuana.

The drug team has suspects in the case, he said.

“All of the evidence is going to be processed,” he said. “We expect to take warrants on suspects after that.”

The domestic situation report Monday was made by Felicia Jones, 26, who told police that a male acquaintance had hit her in the face and choked her.
