One person is in custody following a search warrant conducted by the Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team (CNT).
Early Saturday morning, CNT executed a search warrant at a residence located in the 00 block of East Victory Drive. There, agents encountered the target of the investigation, 40-year-old Ashley Dugger of Savannah, who was taken into custody without incident. The search warrant resulted in the seizure of multiple ounces of crystal methamphetamine and items commonly associated with the distribution of controlled substances. An undisclosed amount of U.S. currency was also seized. Dugger was charged with Trafficking Methamphetamine and remains in the Chatham County Detention Center. The seized narcotics have an estimated street value of up to $9,300.
CNT’s investigation into Dugger began earlier this month after receiving multiple complaints of suspicious activity occurring at the residence. CNT conducted its investigation, which revealed a high volume of vehicle and foot traffic at the residence. The investigation identified Dugger as the suspect and investigative findings suggested large quantities of meth were being sold from the residence. Through the use of various investigative techniques, CNT obtained a search warrant resulting in Dugger’s arrest.
