The Effingham County Sheriff’s Office Drug Suppression Unit initiated a criminal investigation in July regarding illegal drug activity at a Guyton Low Ground Road address after receiving information the occupants were involved in the manufacturing and sale of marijuana, marijuana-infused candy, heroin and LSD.
The investigation resulted in the execution of a search warrant Thursday morning. The search resulted in the seizure of marijuana plants and grow chambers from inside the residence. Marijuana plants were also seized outside the residence.
Investigators also seized suspected heroin, marijuana-infused candy, suspected LSD, firearms, and a stolen golf cart.
The Sheriff’s Office contacted DFACS to assist after it was discovered two small children lived in the home.
Tamara Brennan and Eric Melander were arrested and charged with a variety of felony charges, including manufacturing of marijuana, possession with intent to distribute heroin, possession with intent to distribute LSD, and related gun charges.
