Operation Sandy Bottom defendants continued to roll into federal court last week at the United States District Court of the Southern District of Georgia in Waycross.
The following defendants made their initial appearance in front of a federal magistrate judge for formal arraignments on their charges pertaining to their suspected criminal roles in this investigation. Some defendants were incarcerated at the time the investigation began and allegedly played a significant role as they served time. Others found themselves in custody on unrelated charges after their alleged conspiracy conduct and others were arrested during the investigation from incidents stemming from the case. All were in custody when a federal grand jury indicted 48 members of this drug trafficking organization. Due to their incarceration status and charges, none of these defendants qualified for any bond hearings.
