One man is in custody following an operation conducted by the Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team (CNT).
"Late yesterday evening, CNT agents, with the assistance of the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office K9 Unit, arrested 27-year-old Thomas “White Boy” Holland of Savannah," according to a CNT spokesperson.
"Holland was arrested at an apartment complex located in the 7200 block of Skidaway Road. He was charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance (Heroin) with Intent to Distribute. The Chatham County Sheriff’s Office also served Holland with an outstanding warrant for Probation Violation: Original Offense(s) Sex Offender Registry Violation, False Statements. Also seized during the operation was more than $1,200 in cash and one vehicle."
The investigation into Holland began earlier this month "after CNT received information he was selling large amounts of heroin. Over the course of the operation, undercover agents purchased heroin from Holland. The investigation revealed he was supplying numerous people with heroin throughout Chatham County," CNT says.
Holland remains at the Chatham County Detention Center following an arraignment hearing in the Recorder’s Court of Chatham County, Georgia where he was denied bond.
The case into Holland and his associates is ongoing and "additional arrests are expected. Additional charges against Holland to include Sale of a Controlled Substance (Heroin) are forthcoming," CNT says.
The seized heroin has an estimated street value of more than $1,000.
