During the midst of the current COVID-19 pandemic, and all the issues surrounding the virus, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office has been diligently working to clean the Efficiency Lodge on Fairburn Road of drug dealers. This summer, the Special Investigations Division received information that multiple individuals were involved in a drug trafficking organization operating in the Efficiency Lodge located at 2420 Fairburn Rd, Douglasville Georgia.
During the past several months investigators have made undercover purchases of illicit narcotics from individuals working in concert to facilitate their drug trade. During these operations, some individuals involved were often armed, and utilized communication devices to thwart any type of law enforcement intervention.
On the morning of October 15, 2020, multiple units from the Douglas County Sheriff’s office, Douglasville Police Department, and the Georgia Department of Public Safety executed multiple search warrants simultaneously at the Efficiency Lodge. Search warrants were executed at multiple rooms as well as the office. A related search warrant was also executed at 3625 Sweet Briar Circle, Lithia Springs GA. Agents were able to seize marijuana, cocaine, crack cocaine, methamphetamine, US currency, and a total of 5 firearms.
Investigators arrested the following individuals:
Alviro Smith, 24
Deselvia Greely, 30
Paul Robinson, 39
Trina Robinson, 36
Michael Sasser, 32
Victor Medina, 45
Charges levied against those arrested vary by suspect; however, range from RICO (Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act), use of telecommunications device to facilitate a felony, possession of a firearm during a violation of the Georgia Controlled Substance Act, reckless conduct, theft by receiving stolen motor vehicle, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, and sales of illicit narcotics.
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office strives to serve, protect, and make the community safe. Community involvement is the key to a healthy and happy community. Working together will help to make Douglas County a safe and happy place to live and work. If you have any information of criminal or suspicious activity we would like to hear from you and anonymous tips are always welcome. Stay safe as we head into the holiday season.
