After a month-long investigation, Columbia County Sheriff’s Office narcotics investigators searched a home on the 3800 block of Gordon Highway at about 5 p.m. The people involved were selling and making methamphetamine in the home, sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris said.

Investigators found products used to make meth inside one of the rooms. The products were secure and removed safely. Prescription drugs and marijuana also were seized.

Gregory Antoney Butts, 38, of Mahala Lane in Harlem; Cassandra Flakes Johnson, 39, Hinton-Wilson Road in Harlem; and Kelly Shavonne Appling, 28, Lincolnton Highway in Thomson, were charged with the manufacturing methamphetamine with intent to distribute; manufacturing/delivering/administering/sale/possession of a controlled substance; and possession of Schedule II, III and IV drugs. Angela Marie Glisson, 41, Max Road in Harlem; Joseph Randall McCorkle, 34, Gordon Highway in Harlem; and Shannon Mae Myrick, 30, Burster Circle, Gibson, Ga., were charged with two counts of manufacturing/delivering/administering/sale/possession of a controlled substance, and possession of marijuana and Schedule II, III and IV drugs. All are being held in the Columbia County Detention Center without bond, according to jail records.

Anthony Franklin Bazemore, 28, Lou Lane in Grovetown, was charged with possession of marijuana and was being held Thursday on a $1,600 bond, according to jail records.

Only two charges are
Unpublished

Only two charges are mentioned which would lead one to conclude that other charges are missing. For example, the one about selling drugs without a government stamp, or the one about some kinda weapon being used during a felony. These could easily be attached to secure a conviction, but someone saw fit NOT to file them, Why?

Just to think. Everybody says

Just to think. Everybody says Columbia County is so good. It sure seems like there is alot of drugs in Columbia County. It's been a long time, but to anybody that use to do drugs, there have always been a good drug supply in Columbia County. We use to leave Normans on Washington Road and head straight to Columbia County to where the drugs were at. This isn't anything new to Columbia County. It's just been kept quite for so long. Wake up neighbors. We need to pray that God will change our community. Drugs are everywhere.

Jeusus will give you a higher

Jeusus will give you a higher high than drugs. The county has always had drugs but when Columbia county said it was okay to sell alcohol then you also said okay to alcohol's first cousin called drugs. You can't play with sin any more than playing with snakes. If you want the tax money and the businessess that come with alcohol you always pay a bigger price than what you receive. Satan does math real good; taking you further than you wanted to go and costing you more than you wanted to pay.

I missed that part, where did it say anything about guns? Surely justnuts wouldn't suggest that the police MANUFACTURE false charges? And CC had drugs long before they legalized the sale of alcohol. CC has never said ok to drugs.

I'm glad to see more trash

I'm glad to see more trash off the streets. But an observation; they made it much more difficult for us law abiding citizens to get nasal decongestant under the pretense that it was necessary to curve the meth production. It seems to me that they're manufacturing as much as ever these days.
How long till they find something else to invade the freedom and liberty of law abiding citizens? How many times do we hear about felons with guns? Yet they want to infringe on the constitutional liberties of law abiding citizens. Just waiting on the next excuse.
