The follow-up of a drug case from the previous week led to the arrests of four suspects on drug trafficking charges.

Jones County Investigator Robert Reece said Sarah Bunn, 33, Dacia Holcomb, 23, Jeremy Pitts, 32, and Imelda Hernandez, 28, were arrested at approximately 5 a.m. Jan. 28 and found in possession of 46.4 grams of methamphetamine.

All four have been charged with trafficking methamphetamine.

According to Georgia law, if the methamphetamine involved is 28 grams or more, but less than 200 grams, the person shall be sentenced to a mandatory minimum term of imprisonment of 10 years and shall pay a fine of $200,000.

Reece said the suspects were arrested at Emerald Mobile Home Park as they arrived.

“We suspect Ms. Hernandez was part of an organization distributing meth to Middle Georgia,” he said.

He added that the investigation shows Elizabeth Swift, who was arrested the previous week, and others were involved in the distribution but Hernandez was their supplier.
