Cherokee Deputies Recognized by FBI
Two Cherokee County Sheriff’s officers are recognized and praised for their efforts and cooperation in a tri-state law enforcement operation dubbed “Ghost Face.” The operation refers to the prison and street gang Ghost Face Gangsters in north Georgia. Investigators Matt Sims and Michael Green were presented certificates of recognition by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Friday. The investigation involved a major bust of a methamphetamine trafficking operation run by two illegal aliens serving time in Georgia state prisons for trafficking and murder. The two used contraband cell phones to direct at least eight people in northeastern Alabama and Chattanooga to carry out a conspiracy to traffic meth over a two-year period. Numerous persons were arrested and more than nine pounds of high purity crystal methamphetamine was seized. The investigation is ongoing, and more arrests are expected.
