TIFTON – A three month drug trafficking investigation ended in an arrest Wednesday in Tifton, according to a press release.

Members of the GBI Southwestern Regional Drug Enforcement Office, Mid-South Narcotics Task Force, and the Tift County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant in the 300 block of Poplar Street June 26, the release states.

During the investigation, agents began purchasing methamphetamine from Brian Keith Foster, age 27, in Tifton, the release states. Throughout the investigation, numerous investigative acts, including undercover purchases, led agents to develop probable cause for the issuance of search warrants and arrests warrants, according to the release.

As a result of the search warrant, over three ounces of methamphetamine was seized along with 30 suspected MDMA ecstasy pills, marijuana, and two firearms (one pistol and one sawed off shotgun).

Foster is currently being held in the Tift County Jail charged with trafficking in methamphetamine, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and possession of a sawed-off shotgun, the release states.
