Three men are in custody and one person is wanted following the seizure of three meth labs in Chatham and Bryan Counties by the Chatham–Savannah Counter Narcotics Team (CNT).
Undercover CNT Agents received information of an active meth cook at a residence in the 1600 block of Fort Argyle Road. CNT arrested 51–year–old Ray Bobby Creel Jr. of Savannah and 35–year–old Robert Stegins Jr. of Bloomingdale.
A Hazmat Team was called in to assist with the cleanup of the meth lab and immediate area.
Both men were charged with numerous felonies to include Manufacturing Methamphetamine. The arrest was Creel’s 25th arrest in Chatham County and his fourth arrest by CNT.
Creel was out on Probation at the time.
• In a separate investigation, CNT agents responded to the 4800 block of Old Louisville Road at the request of the Garden City Police Department, who initially were responding to a structure fire.
First responders had noticed a strong chemical odor and discovered items they believed to be related to meth labs.
CNT found 36–year–old Dustan Jeff Lax of Garden City and a female at the residence cooking meth when an explosion occurred causing the fire. Both Lax and the female fled the scene.
Lax was eventually taken into custody without incident at a hotel in Pooler, GA, after receiving numerous phone calls concerning Lax’s whereabouts after his picture was broadcast by local media outlets.
Police continue to search for 32-year-old Casey Renee Horn, also known as Casey Sloan, of Pooler. Horn-Sloan is currently wanted by CNT for the offense, Manufacturing Methamphetamine in connection with the meth lab explosion.
Additionally, Horn-Sloan is also wanted by the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office on three separate Contempt of Court charges.
Horn-Sloan is described as a white female, 5ft 5in, 130lbs, and dirty blonde hair with green eyes.
Anyone with information concerning her whereabouts is asked to contact CNT at (912) 652-3900 or call Crime Stoppers at (912) 234-2020 where callers can remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.
• In yet another separate investigation, CNT Agents arrested 42–year–old Carl Drass of Bryan County on July 21 following the execution of a search warrant at Drass’s residence, located in the 100 block of Queens Way Drive, Bryan County.
CNT Agents working in an undercover capacity, obtained methamphetamine from Drass at which time agents learned Drass was preparing to cook additional meth.
Not allowing Drass to start cooking, agents executed the search warrant resulting in the seizure of items used in meth cooks.
Drass was arrested on numerous felony charges to include Sale of a Controlled Substance (meth) and Manufacturing Methamphetamine.
Drass was taken to the Bryan County Detention Center where he has since posted bail.
