Richmond County authorities have identified 19 trafficking-related suspects following a two-year undercover bust targeting Tyrone Guy’s Drug Trafficking Organization.

Local, state and federal agents executed 17 search warrants at Augusta residences and one in Martinez, seizing a large amount of drugs, weapons, cars and vehicles.
