CAIRO — Authorities executed a search warrant last week that resulted in the arrest of two drug suspects.
Calvin Thomas of Cairo and Freddie Solomon of Pelham were both taken into custody Thursday evening.
A joint force consisting of the Grady County Sheriff’s Office Drug Unit, deputies on patrol, the Cairo Police Department and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation executed the search warrant on the 800 block of East Boulevard NE at around 9:13 p.m.
A search of the residence yielded an unspecified quantity of methamphetamine and marijuana, scales and a large number of lottery tickets.
Thomas, 45, was charged with felony possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, misdemeanor possession of marijuana less than one ounce and failing to register a change of address as a registered sex offender.
Solomon, 30, was charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana less than one ounce.
Two other males who were also detained were later released after questioning without being charged.
The search warrant was part of an ongoing drug investigation.
Sheriff Harry Young recently assigned Lt. Michael Logue, Lt. Jake Bush and Capt. Chris Luckey to the newly-formed Drug Unit to focus on narcotics investigations.
“The Grady County Sheriff’s Office has always been fortunate to have an ongoing working relationship with the Cairo Police Department and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and will continue to combat the drug problem we have in our community,” Luckey said in a statement.
