On October 28, 2020 the Special Operations Division of the Sheriff’s Office and members of the FBI Gang Task Force served a search a search warrant at 402 B East Jane Street, based upon a citizen complaint of drug distribution and unemployment fraud being perpetrated by the residents. The surveillance indicated that TAURIAN WERTS and DEONTREY CRUMPTON were the occupants of the home, and drug sales were observed over the course of the investigation. The search warrant revealed close to 1000 grams of marijuana, approximately $15,000 in cash, two firearms, evidence of unemployment fraud and ID theft, as well as a check forging operation. WERTS and CRUMPTON were charged with violations of the Georgia controlled substances act, firearm possession by convicted felons, and charges related to the Street Gang and Terrorism Act. The case has been presented to the United States Attorney’s Office as a Project Safe Neighborhood prosecution.
