On 9/18/14 Statesboro-Bulloch Crime Suppression Team members served a search warrant at 130 Lanier Drive (Cambridge @ Southern The Palms) after investigators received information of drug sales from that location. Multiple bags of cocaine and marijuana were seized and the two residents, Robin Renee Dickerson (49 yoa, Lanier Drive, Statesboro) and Dexture Lamar Dickerson (40 yoa, Lanier Drive, Statesboro) were arrested. Robin Dickerson is charged with 1 ct of Possession of Marijuana with Intent, 1 ct of Possession of Cocaine with Intent, and 1 ct of Sale of Cocaine. Dexture Dickerson is charged with 3 cts of Sale of Cocaine, 1 ct of Possession of Marijuana with Intent, and 1 ct of Possession of Cocaine with Intent. Both were transported to the Bulloch County Jail where they remain until they post $10,000 bonds each.
On the same day and in the same apartment complex, CST investigators responded to another apartment for a drug complaint and found marijuana in plain view in the common area of the apartment. After obtaining a search warrant, investigators located multiple pounds of high grade marijuana inside the apartment along with a large sum of US currency. Keilan Mann (21 yoa, Lanier Drive, Statesboro) was charged with 1 ct Possession of Marijuana with Intent, Joseph Okekpe (22 yoa, Lanier Drive, Statesboro) was charged with 1 ct of Possession of Marijuana with Intent, and Maya Shasta (19 yoa, Rosewell Rd, Atlanta Ga) was charged with 1 ct of Possession of Marijuana (misdemeanor). Both Mann and Okekpe were out on previous felony drug bonds after being arrested by CST and are therefore held without bond at the Bulloch County Jail. Shasta posted a $2000 bond and was released.
On 9/23/14 CST investigators executed a search warrant at 1150 Brampton Avenue (The Grove Apts) after investigators learned that the tenant, Eduardo Jean (19 yoa, Country Lane, Carrollton Ga), was manufacturing fictitious Georgia ID cards and drivers licenses. During the search investigators located all the necessary computer and printing equipment to manufacture high quality false documents. Jean was arrested and transported to the Bulloch County Jail and charged with 3 cts of Possession of False Identification Documents and 19 cts of Forgery in the 1st Degree. He remains in custody pending the posting of a $20,000 bond.
These arrests are part of an ongoing effort by the CST to eliminate drug sales in the Lanier Drive corridor adjacent to GSU campus and also to impede the manufacture of fictitious ID documents, especially in light of recent concerns over incidents at local businesses near campus.
