According to Appling County Sheriff Benny DeLoach agents of the Altamaha Drug Task Force, Georgia Bureau of Investigation Savannah Regional Drug Enforcement Office and Appling County Sheriff’s Deputies executed a search warrant at 335 Ashley Road, in Baxley on January 24. As a result of the raid components of an active methamphetamine manufacturing operation were seized. Also seized was a quantity of methamphetamine.
The following people have been arrested in connection with the drug operation:
- Justin Howard Herrington, 36, charged with one count manufacturing methamphetamine, and two counts possession of methamphetamine.
- Kasey Nell Herrington, 26, charged with one count manufacturing methamphetamine, one count possession of methamphetamine, one count possession of marijuana, and two counts of pills outside of original container.
- Marcus William Beasley, 25, charged with one count conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine.
The three subjects are currently incarcerated in the Appling County Detention Center awaiting bond determination by the Superior Court of Appling County.
Sheriff Deloach stated these types of operations have to be treated as Hazardous Material sites, because the manufacture of methamphetamine creates a dangerous environment for anyone located in it. Additional charges may arise out of this investigation. Sheriff Deloach continues to request citizens to be involved and provide information to the sheriff’s office about any illegal activity.
