Drug Investigation Leads to Two Arrests in Toccoa

Toccoa Police Chief Tim Jarrell said two people face drug charges after a recent investigation.

Last Tuesday, Mountain Judicial Circuit N.C.I.S. Drug Team agents and the Toccoa Police Department’s Uniform Patrol, Criminal Investigation, K-9, and SWAT Team units all executed a search warrant at a residence on Hughes Street.

Jarrell said the search warrant was the culmination of a lengthy investigation and thanks that neighborhood for helping police crack the case.

“One of the goals of the police department is to improve the quality of life for all of our citizens and after receiving complaints from the community concerning these activities, we began our investigation into suspected drug sales,” said Jarrell.  “As a result, two individuals were arrested and our citizens should be commended for assisting us in the investigation and not tolerating drug sales in their neighborhood.”

Authorities arrested 27-year-old Hafeez Dunbar of Toccoa and charged him with one count of Possession of Crack Cocaine with the Intent to Distribute and one count of Distribution of Crack Cocaine.

They also arrested 29-year-old Hafeez Wilson of Toccoa and charged him with one count of Possession of Marijuana with the Intent to Distribute.

Jarrell said while serving the search warrant, police found crack cocaine, marijuana, and about $1,300 in cash.
