Big Statesboro drug bust nets two Screven arrest, while one still at large

Two Screven County residents were arrested and a third remained at large in an undercover gun and drug bust in Statesboro last week.

Irie Williams Brinson, 38, 4th Avenue, Sylvania, was arrested last week on one count of conspiracy to distribute controlled substances and 14 counts of distribution of controlled substances in or near a school zone. The indictment said the drugs involved were oxycodone, crack cocaine, hydrocodone and alprazolam.

Jonathan Lamar Jones, 24, Riley Way, Sylvania, was arrested last week for one count of unlicensed dealing in firearms; two counts of possession of a firearm in or near a school zone; and four counts of distribution of controlled substances in or near a school zone. The indictment says cocaine was the drug involved in those charges.

Also indicted but not yet arrested was William Randall Hunt, 42, of Screven County. He was indicted for one count of conspiracy to: acquire pre-cursor chemicals, manufacture methamphetamine and distribute methamphetamine; as well as one count of transferring a firearm to a felon.

The three were among nearly 100 people named in state and federal indictments in a 10-month undercover operation. Seventeen local, state and federal agencies took part in the bust, which the U.S. Attorney’s office in Savannah described as an “undercover storefront investigation.”

Undercover agents purchased nearly 100 guns, including handguns, rifles, assault rifles, shotguns and sawed-off shotguns. A number of the guns had been stolen in burglaries of homes, the U.S. Attorney’s office said.

They also purchased $250,000 worth of illegal drugs, including powdered and crack cocaine, ecstasy, marijuana, methamphetamine and prescription drugs.
