A suspected cocaine and marijuana dealer was arrested and jailed by Coffee County authorities last week following the execution of a search warrant at a Douglas residence.

Detectives with the Douglas-Coffee Drug Unit, with assistance from the Douglas Police Department, Coffee County Sheriff’s Office, Georgia State Probation Office, and H.E.A.T officers, conducted the search Wednesday, March 1, at approximately 4:30 p.m. at a home on Magnolia Street.

As officers approached the residence, the target of the investigation, Ellars James Manning, 28, fled the scene on foot but was later apprehended. A search of the property led authorities to the discovery of large quantities of cocaine and marijuana, along with illicit prescription medications and a stolen handgun.  

Manning faces multiple felony charges including trafficking cocaine, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, three counts of possession of Schedule II controlled substance, and theft by receiving stolen property
