Investigators said Warren was in possession of over ten ounces of illegal drugs when brought down; enough for him to face federal prison.

“I want people that are coming here to sell drugs or living here to sell drugs to know that we are going to do everything we can to lock them up as long as we can and get them out of our communities and make our neighborhoods drug-free again,” said Franklin County Sheriff A.J. Smith.

Sheriff Smith said the investigation was aided by the DEA, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the ATF, the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office, Liberty County Sheriff’s Office and the Calhoun County K-9 unit.
