Police: Cocaine supplier arrested

KINGSLAND, Ga. -- Multiple law enforcement agencies cooperated to arrest a 26-year-old they say was the supplier for a cocaine operation in Kingsland.

Kingsland Police Investigators assigned to their Special Operations Division worked with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to conduct an investigation involving complex undercover purchases of illicit drugs.

During the undercover investigation, police learned Reginald Campbell was a direct supplier of cocaine to the Kingsland area and became the focus of the investigation, according to a news release from Kingsland Police Department Public Information Officer Lieutenant Todd Tetterton.

On July 18, law enforcement officers pulled over a vehicle Campbell was driving. During the search of his vehicles, police found approximately 2 grams of crack cocaine and approximately 25 grams of powder cocaine that Campbell had thrown from the vehicle during the traffic stop, Tetterton said.

Police arrested Campbell and charged him with possession of crack with intent to sell and possession of cocaine with intent to sell.  Campbell was taken to the Camden County Jail in Woodbine.

"We will continue to combat the increasingly complex and sophisticated methods individuals use to distribute their poison in our community," said Kingsland Police Chief Darryl Griffis.
