Coffee County Drug Unit agents have assisted the Ware County Sheriff’s Office Drug Enforcement Unit detectives with a narcotics investigation that led to the arrest of Tony Ricardo Street.
The information involved the illegal sales of a narcotics, specifically methamphetamine. Ware County detectives coordinated their efforts with information received from the Coffee County Drug Unit. On July 16, 2020, following a lengthy investigation into Street’s illegal activities, a combined team of Ware County detectives, Coffee County Drug Unit detectives and a special agent with the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) arrested Street in Waycross.
At the time of his arrest Street was in possession of more than two ounces of methamphetamine. A search warrant had already been obtained by Ware County for Street’s residence in Waycross. The search warrant was immediately served following streets arrest. As a result of the search warrant, officers seized $6,000 as evidence. Street was transported to the Ware County Jail; he was charged with trafficking in methamphetamine and sales of methamphetamine. His bond was denied at his first appearance hearing due to him being on active parole.
Street has a past extensive history of illegal narcotic involvement in Coffee County, including a conviction for the sale of methamphetamine in 2016 in Coffee County. Street was sentenced to 20 years; he was paroled out on October 19, 2018.
Sheriff Doyle Wooten would like to thank the Ware County Sheriff’s Office, the ATF officers, and the officers with the Coffee County Sheriff’s Office for the time and effort in the investigation and conclusion of this case.
