Four men are facing felony cocaine possession charges after their weekend arrests at Garden City Social on Broad Street in Augusta.

Those arrested include:

  • Joshua Harden, 30, of Augusta, Cocaine possession: He’s accused of possessing 1.02 grams of powder cocaine. Deputies arrested him after receiving information that he was in the club in possession of cocaine. The drugs were seen being placed inside his pants pocket, but he threw the clear plastic bag on the floor when he was confronted, an arrest warrant says.
  • William Banks, 31, of Augusta, Cocaine possession: He’s accused of possessing an unknown amount of cocaine. Deputies arrested him after receiving information that he was being escorted by security out of the club for being in possession of cocaine. The drugs were found inside his pants pocket, an arrest warrant says.
  • Mor Reuven, 26, of Atlanta, Cocaine possession: He’s accused of possessing 0.77 grams of powder cocaine. Deputies arrested him after receiving information that he was being escorted by security out of the club for being in possession of cocaine. The drugs were found inside his pants pocket, an arrest warrant says.
  • Alon Azar Sr., 31, of Atlanta, Cocaine possession: He’s accused of possessing 0.81 grams of powder cocaine. Deputies arrested him after receiving information that he was being escorted by security out of the club for being in possession of cocaine. The drugs were found inside his pants pocket, an arrest warrant says.

All four were arrested late Saturday and booked into the jail early Sunday. On Monday, one of the suspects called The Jail Report in hopes of keeping his arrest out of the news. He said a firefighter burst into the restroom and confronted them about the cocaine and turned them over to cops.
