Drug Bust in Lee County
Fri, 15 Aug 2008 13:59:51 GMT —
The Lee County Sheriff TMs Department working with the Georgia Bureau of Investigations confiscated 8 pounds of marijuana, $10,000, three guns, three cars, scales, and electronics from 273 St. Claire Drive near Highway 91.
Deputies arrested 30-year-old Stan Collins and 33-year-old Praythia Miller Wednesday morning. Both are charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. Undercover deputies made the bust, and authorities tell Fox 31 News the drugs were stashed all over the house, including the microwave. The Lee County Narcotics Unit broke the case through a connection with Bobby Lee Williams. Williams was arrested late last year on drug trafficking charges. Authorities say Stan Collins was a lieutenant in Williams TM drug ring.
The Lee County Sheriff TMs Department says it used assets confiscated from Williams to buy equipment that helped catch Collins and Miller.
