Three accused of meth trafficking in Pulaski

The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office arrested three men accused of drug dealing.

Sheriff Billy Cape said officers confiscated about $10,000 cash Tuesday along with 6.6 ounces of crystal meth and 10 marijuana plants growing behind a trailer where 38-year-old David Hodges lives at 762 Lower River Road in Hawkinsville.

The end of an undercover operation involving the Oconee Drug Task Force and other state and local agencies resulted in the arrest of Hodges, 48-year-old Randy Evans and John Robert Thompson Jr., 46.

All three are charged with trafficking methamphetamine with other charges pending, Cape said.

“It’s everywhere. It’s tough stuff,” Cape said. “People get on it, it makes you look old and it’s hard to get off.”

Cape called this the largest bust since he took office in January.

Two vehicles, a boat, two all-terrain vehicles, a trailer and generator, were seized in the raid, according to a news release from the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office.
