Cato reported his agents went to a residence on Linwood Circle in the Mills Creek subdivision in Hinesville to arrest Toddrick Stevenson, 27.
Cato said Stevenson was involved in a drug-related incident and was charged with intent to distribute cocaine. During the arrest, agents allege Stevenson said there was a firearm in the house. MACE secured a warrant and searched the house. They reportedly found four and three-fourths pounds of suspected marijuana, one and a half ounces of suspected powder cocaine, a half ounce of possible crack cocaine, two firearms and $1,300 in cash. Agents also seized one vehicle, suspected drug paraphernalia, digital scales, sandwich bags and a container with a hidden compartment. Cato said the drug related objects are often used by drug traffickers.
Stevenson was charged with two counts of possession with intent to distribute cocaine, possession with intent to distribute marijuana and possession of a firearm during a crime. Cato said the case will be forwarded to ATF Savannah for review and possible prosecution under Project Cease Fire.
