Samson Drug Busts

Efforts are taking place in Samson to rid a public housing complex of drug traffic.

The sell of crack cocaine is very much on the mind of Samson Police Chief Gary Weeks.

His department along with the Geneva County Drug Task Force appears to have made headway.

Dorothy Jarrett along with her husband and grandchild live along Canal Street, an area targeted by Samson Police for illegal drug sells.

Within the last week, four persons have been arrested on crack cocaine sell and distribution charges.

Myra Johnson is another resident happy to see the drug busts, she lives across the street from public housing.

The drug arrests are a joint operation between Samson and the Geneva County Drug Task Force.

Local authorities say the majority of customers coming to buy crack cocaine in Samson are from outside the area. Some from as far away as Defuniak Springs, Florida and Bainbridge, Georgia.
