The latest report from the Telfair County Sheriff’s Office details the arrests of two local men in the agency’s continued war on illegal drugs in the area. According to Telfair County Sheriff, Chris Steverson, as a result of an ongoing undercover drug investigation targeting individuals suspected of selling illegal narcotics in the area, warrants for the arrest of several suspects were obtained.
In the effort of serving one of those warrants on Feb. 15, deputies with the Telfair County Sheriff’s Office arrested 27-year-old, Charles Anthony Evans from McRae-Helena. Evans is charged with three counts of selling methamphetamine, two counts of obstruction of an officer, possession of methamphetamine and possession of marijuana. According to officials, deputies from the sheriff’s office located Evans on Oak Street in McRae-Helena and when they approached him he fled into a local business.Officers chased him into the business and took him into custody.
As a result of working another of those warrants, investigators and deputies executed a search warrant at a residence on Fourth Avenue in McRae-Helena in support of the investigation. According to officials they were looking for 33-year-old, Sherman Lamar Perry from McRae-Helena. “A short time thereafter,” says the sheriff, “we received information that the suspect was spotted near Third and Oak. Deputies were dispatched to that area where he was taken into custody.” Perry is charged with two counts of selling marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. Both Evans and Perry remain in the Telfair County Jail awaiting a bond determination. “Our Deputies and Investigators continue to do an excellent job of working with concerned members of the public to identify, investigate, and arrest drug dealers, thieves, and other criminals who make the very costly mistake of plying their trades here in our county,” says Sheriff Steverson. “There are other reprobates whose arrest and feature in The Enterprise has NOT YET taken place. I can assure you, we are in the process of building a strong case against those, and they too will meet the same fate very soon.”
