On Monday, July 3, 2023, the Telfair County Sheriff’s office and the Georgia State Patrol SWAT team executed a high risk search warrant at the residence of Jerry Dean Clements. During the raid, officers seized large quantities of drugs and several firearms.  Clements was not at home at the time officers arrived and warrants were obtained for his arrest.

However, on August 9, his luck ran out when investigators and agents located Clements at a motel in Hazlehurst.  When Clements walked out to his vehicle, he was immediately surrounded by law enforcement and taken into custody.  The vehicle Clements was occupying contained three additional firearms, ammunition and small quantities of suspected marijuana. 




Clements, 39, of Lumber City, was charged with trafficking methamphetamine, trafficking MDMA, trafficking cocaine, trafficking oxycodone, possession of mushrooms, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of firearm by a convicted felon (x2), possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and probation violation.




In addition to the charges in Telfair County, Jeff Davis County authorities charged him with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon (x3) and possession of marijuana less than one ounce.
