BUTTS COUNTY, GA - Five people accused of running a large multi-county meth operation are in custody after a year-long investigation.

The Butts County Sheriff's Office says undercover agents determined that the occupants of a home on Forrest Avenue in Jackson were running a large meth operation spanning as many as six metro Atlanta counties.

"What narcotics agents always try to do is they always try and find out ‘who is the supplier to our supplier’ and when you do that usually gets to a level, you start falling into cartels," said Sheriff Long.

The Butts County narcotics division agents and the sheriff's enforcement team executed a search warrant at around 1 a.m. Monday morning. Officers found Six ounces of methamphetamines, one gallon of the date-rape drug GHB, LSD, marijuana, prescription pills and steroids were all confiscated from the home. A large amount of cash was also seized. The department says the drugs were distributed in Butts, Monroe, Pike, Henry, Clayton and Spalding counties.

The suspects arrested are William David Carter, Anthony Craig Scott, Brent Bruce, Victoria Winters and Amanda Chambers. The department says more arrests are expected.
