A two-month investigation into a suspected distributor of illegal pain pills has resulted in the arrest of a Cairo man and seizure of illegal drugs, according to officers with the Grady County Drug Unit. Concerned citizens notified the drug unit about the suspected illegal activity taking place in the 300 block of Mild Avenue S.W., according to Chris Luckey, commander of the drug unit that is part of the Grady County Sheriff’s Office.
Officers obtained a search warrant for the residence of interest, and executed it on Monday, March 16, shortly after 10 a.m., Luckey states.
He states agents seized “approximately nine ounces of marijuana, several pain pills identified as Oxycodone, and several hundred dollars as well as a 9-mm handgun.”
Tips to officers indicated the suspect goes by the street name “Boss.”
Drug agents say they arrested Robert Lee James, a.k.a. “Boss,” on charges of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, and possession of a schedule II controlled substance with intent to distribute. He was being held in the Grady Detention Center.
