Undercover operation leads to marijuana bust

  • Follow Crime & courts

An undercover narcotics operation led to the arrest Wednesday of an Augusta man charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office incident report.

At 10:25 a.m., Andrew Lee Knight was spotted by narcotics investigators on the 300 block of Telfair Street placing two sealed, clear plastic bags containing 440.9 grams of marijuana inside his green backpack. The investigators apprehended Knight and found in his bag another plastic container with 3.1 grams of marijuana and a black digital scale, the report states.

Knight, 23, of the 1000 block of Stevens Creek Road and an employee of Fatz Cafe, admitted to possessing marijuana and told the investigator, “Y’all got me. I’m guilty.”

Iwannakno, I believe this is

Iwannakno, I believe this is a subtle way of letting the reader know that all crimes in Richmond County are not commited by young, black males. The problem extends into Comumbia County as well. Thus, Fatz Cafe, without the direct reference to race. Of course, my commentary is foolish and off the cuff without much thought. So it goes!

I think it is important for

I think it is important for people to know where drug-traffickers work. If they will break one law, they tend to break others, too. People should be informed when criminals have been in regular contact with the general public through their jobs, which provides them opportunity for networking for contacts for drug-trafficking purposes. For instance, remember the utility worker who was drug-trafficking?

microprill, you may have another conversion chart I'm not aware of, but 440.9 grams is almost a pound. You might want to get a "grib".

On the street, if mid grade

On the street, if mid grade marijuana runs about $5 to $10 a gram, then $2,000 to $4,000 isn't nothing to sneeze at for a 23 year old (IMO)

"An undercover narcotics operation led to the arrest"....sounds more like lucky "observation" by a tax paid plain clothes cop hanging around an area catching someone with a 'non-Federal approved passive drug"!

AsitisinAugusta. It may have been unnecessary to mention Fatz Cafe in this article, but if they'll mention the place of employment for Richmond County, why not Columbia County? Fair's fair. And if they don't mention it, people will wonder if something is being covered up.
