Undercover Drug Bust in Geneva

A Geneva business was busted Friday, following a several month undercover drug investigation.

Authorities say it's another arrest as part of Operation Who's Next.

Authorities served a search warrant at the home of Sylvester Sikes Junior.

Police say Sikes will be charged with two-counts of unlawful distribution of a controlled substance.

In addition, search warrants were served on the suspect's auto detailing and restaurant business in downtown Geneva.

Sheriff Greg Ward with the Geneva County Sheriff’s Department said, "We're all working together in ridding the community of the problem. I think in coming weeks and month,s folks here will notice a big difference in the amount of drugs we're taking off the streets. It’s the culmination of a two-and-a-half year investigation by the sheriff's department."

As part of Operation Who's Next, the sheriff's department is targeting the street sellers of illegal drugs.

Geneva Police Department Chief Frankie Lindsey said, "We here in Geneva are no different from other towns and cities. We have a drug problem, and by joining forces with the Geneva County Sheriff's Department, we will continue to make a difference and send these folks to jail."

Sikes has a total bond set at $200,000 dollars.

In coming weeks, Sheriff Ward says they'll be additional arrests stemming from the undercover drug investigation, which stretches over a two-year period.
