Tifton, GA (June 27, 2019) – On Wednesday, June 26, 2019, members of the GBI Southwestern Regional Drug Enforcement Office, Mid-South Narcotics Task Force, and the Tift County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant concluding a three-month investigation.
During the investigation, agents began purchasing methamphetamine from Brian Keith Foster, age 27, at 312 Poplar Street Tifton, Georgia. Throughout the investigation, numerous investigative acts, to include undercover purchases, led agents to develop probable cause for the issuance of search warrants and arrests warrants.

Foster is currently being held in the Tift County Jail charged with Trafficking in Methamphetamine, Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Distribute, Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon, Possession of a Firearm during the Commission of a Felony, and Possession of a Sawed-Off Shotgun.
