Six charged with drugs at county jail

MOULTRIE — Six people were apprehended after they allegedly tried to pass suspected drugs into the Colquitt County Jail over the weekend.

Cain Eugene Hall, 33, of 253 Southerland Ave. in Berlin; Noah Lew Sangster, 27, of 162-D Cook Road; Jason Pete Parker, 33, of 802 N. Cleveland Ave.; Amy Inez Truelove, 25, of 406 Dean Matthews Road; and April Dawn Sangster, 28, and Noah Melvin Sangster, 50, both of 176 Cook Road, were each charged with conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, conspiracy to distribute marijuana and crossing a guardline with contraband.

Hall, Truelove and Noah Melvin Sangster were also charged with using a communication device to commit a felony.

Moultrie-Colquitt County Drug Enforcement Team (DET) Commander Sgt. Steve Exum said a jail search was conducted over the weekend for items dropped off for inmates. During the search, jail officers found suspected methamphetamine and marijuana hidden inside of a Bible.

DET agents confiscated the suspected drugs and began investigating the incident, Exum said. Using security camera footage, agents determined the suspected drugs had been allegedly dropped off by Truelove, April Sangster and Noah Lew Sangster. Noah Melvin Sangster, Hall and Parker were already incarcerated in the jail.

The incident remained under investigation as of Thursday afternoon, and Exum said additional arrests are expected.
