One person is in custody following a joint operation resulting in a large drug seizure.

Late Tuesday morning, the Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team (CNT) arrested 35-year-old Sedan Smith of Savannah. Smith was arrested for Trafficking Cocaine and served with an outstanding warrant for Parole Violation.

"Late yesterday morning, CNT, the Georgia State Board of Pardon and Parole, and United States Marshals, were conducting a joint operation in the 700 block of East Gwinnett Street. Law enforcement identified Smith to be in the area and knew him to be wanted by Parole," CNT reports.

"Smith was observed leaving a residence, attempted to flee on foot upon sight of police, and was quickly taken into custody. Law enforcement conducted a search of the residence that Smith was seen leaving."

CNT says "the search resulted in a large seizure of powder and crack cocaine
as well as a large seizure of ecstasy. Also seized were marijuana, items commonly associated with the distribution of controlled substances, and nearly $800 in cash."

The operation marked Smith’s fourth arrest by CNT.

    Stacey Abrams appears ready to break that mold. Not only because she’s notably not a member of an established political family, but because among other positive qualities, she likes campaigning, and she’s really good at it.
