(St .Mary’s, Georgia) – First arrest after DEA “conspiracy” raid on an alleged fake pain and rehab clinic in Camden County, Georgia allegedly involved in the distribution of opioids charged up to $300 per prescription – and sent drugs seekers to a pharmacy controlled by co-conspirators, the feds say.

Numerous arrests are expected – however the first person charged is 46-year-old Silverly Ann May who has several Florida addresses. The clinic is near the state line.
May faces up to five years in federal prison if convicted of felony “conspiracy.”

Pain clinic graphic 2
The clinic was raid in June 2017 and the first charges were filed on Thurs., Dec. 21, 2017
In fact, the alleged conspiracy deposited over $1.2 million dollars in a bank account.
The feds allege the pain clinic trafficked illegally in opioids such as oxycodone, hydromorphone, hydrocodone, and alprazolam.

The investigation involves the “Coastline Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, a nominal pain care clinic” at 40l1 Georgia Highway 40 East in St. Mary’s, Georgia.
The alleged conspiracy began on Oct. 9, 2014 and ended on June 13, 2017 – when federal agents moved in.

The co-conspirators allegedly plan involved to “knowingly and intentionally distribute and dispense, and cause to be distributed and dispensed, quantities of controlled substances, including oxycodone, hydromorphone, and hydrocodone, Schedule II controlled substances, and alprazolam, a Schedule IV controlled substance, not for a legitimate medical purpose and not in the usual course of professional practice,” the felony federal information, a charging tool used in addition to indictments.

“Members of the conspiracy” hired and trained employees and employed one doctor (unnamed in the criminal information) in an alleged effort to look legitimate.

“Drug seeking customers typically paid between $200 and $300” to the alleged bogus clinic “in exchange for prescriptions for controlled substance.” The drug seekers then “filed at one of more pharmacies , controlled by conspirators outside the usual course of professional practice and without legitimate medial purpose,: the criminal information charges

The conspirators opened and made use of Ameris Bank” by opening an account “to promote and facilitate the criminal activity” that allegedly include numerous types of opioids.

The deposits total over $1.2 million dollars – $1,271, 940.11.
Some of money was used to pay employees and operate the alleged fake pain clinic.
The co-conspirators plan was allegedly “to conceal or disguise the nature, the location, the sources, the ownership, or control of the proceeds of specified unlawful activity,” federal prosecutors charge.

The Southern District of Georgia federal prosecutors who closed down the clinic and are expected to file more charges as part of the conspiracy:
U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Georgia Bobby L. Christine
Assistant U.S. Attorney Brian T. Rafferty, criminal division chief
Assistant U.S. Attorney Karl I. Knoche

(Allendale, SC) – A state and federal probe into alleged corruption involving Allendale city officials appears to be much more in-depth and widespread than originally thought – as agents confiscated almost all city records amounting to tens of thousands of files and more.

Federal prosecutors – in a motion to seal the search warrant – stated officials feared tipping off “targets” of the probe – and that could result in the destruction of records and city officials fleeing to avoid prosecution.

Allendale city raid 11-3-17 graphic 3 fear of tampering

For almost a month before the raid, only a handful of state and federal law enforcement and judicial officials knew of the pending search and seizure of tens of thousands of city records and the town hall.

In fact, the motion points out that tipping off suspects could result in danger to cooperating informants and witnesses in the corruption probe.

The motion to seal the search warrant information was prepared by Asst. U.S. Attorney Jay N. Richardson on behalf of South Carolina U.S. Attorney Beth Drake.

Records obtained by S.E. Social Justice Breaking News reveal the dozens of city records obtained on Oct. 3, 2017 when state and federal agents raid the Allendale, SC City Hall – serving a search warrant and seizing thousands of pages of records with no one present representing the city when agent burst through the door.

The raid was conducted by agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED).

Among the records seized were the “James Elmore Backhoe Injury File;”credit cards (Office Max, Home Depot); Water Department work orders; 2016 payroll records/ledgers, invoices, employee time sheets, hard drives, documents related to insurance and vehicle auction; several ledger books, numerous checkbook receipts, grant documents, documents from the insurance reserve fund; and much, much more.

In fact, it appears the probe into alleged corruption by city officials now appears to be much more sweeping than originally thought – as agents seized virtually all city records including most departments..

Here is a list of what the FBI and SLED seized:

The search warrant was signed on Sept. 27, 2017 by U.S. Magistrate Judge Paige Jones Gossett in Columbia, SC – and the agents were given until Oct. 11 to conduct the raid.

FBI Special Agent Deborah Gordon inventoried what agents were removing after the surprise raid at 9:06 a.m. ET on Oct. 3, 2017.

Agent Gordon states that no one was present at city hall to received a copy of the warrant and inventory.

The official inventory sheet or thousands of city records was signed by FBI Special Agent Clay Trippi on Oct. 10, 2017

Allendale Mayor Ronnie JacksonMayor Ronnie Jackson was quoted by local TV stations (WRDW, WJBF, WAGT) – reportedly telling one station the investigation has to do with use of a piece of city equipment on land that he owned.

The mayor denied taxpayer money had been stolen.

The mayor is quoted as saying Allendale City Administrator Dewayne Ennis was inside the building along with SLED and the FBI.

However search warrants states “no one was present” except for law enforcement officials.

Felon shot by cops Diriuss Antonio Redd

(Augusta, GA) – An Augusta man who was shot over seven years ago by a Richmond County Sherrif’s Department Deputy is off to federal prison again for violating terms of supervised federal release in a case that began just over five years ago.

redd mug 1Now 31 years old – Diriuss Antonio Redd – was indicted in Feb. 8, 2012 one one count of felon in possession of a firearm by a federal grand jury sitting in Augusta. He was one of over 100 people busted in the Augusta area on state and federal charges during a seven-month joint undercover operation by the RCSD and other agencies including the feds. “Operation Smoke Screen.”

Scroll down to read a press release from federal prosecutors on that operation.

Redd apparently had just been released from federal prison in July 2017 when he was arrested in Nov. 2017 on a supervised release violation.

The indictment stated on October 25, 2011, in Richmond County Redd did “knowingly” possessed a Norinco, Model SKS, 7.62 x 39 caliber rifle. This after having been convicted on June 11, 2004 of forgery-first degree in Richmond County Superior Court.

He was sentenced to five years in prison in July 2012 after pleading guilty to the firearms charge.

However, on Tues., Nov. 14, 2017 Redd was sentenced to 14 months in federal prison for violating probation on several occasions while on supervised release including failing a drug test and not paying fines.

He was sentenced in 2012 and this week by U.S. District Court Judge J. Randal Hall, chief judge of the South District of Georgia.

 

In 2010, Redd made the Augusta area news when he was shot by a cop while trying to take the officer’s gun.

Richmond County Sheriff’s Deputy Jo Martin shot Redd – then 24 years old – in the groin on April 27, 2010 after he struggled with the officer during his arrest at Augusta Estates mobile home park on Milledgeville Road. Deputy Martin was cleared in the shooting as she was attempting to arrest Redd on outstanding warrants including a felony aggravated stalking charge – when a struggled ensued.

Martin attempted the arrest after responding to the mobile home park about a break-in at a woman’s trailer – and that’s when he spotted Redd.

Redd was wanted on the aggravated stalking charge after his children’s grandmother said he tried to break into a car and was in violation of a court order.

24 Defendants Charged with Gun Offenses After Undercover Investigation

Undercover RCSO officer purchased and seized over 64 firearms during “Operation Smoke Screen”

AUGUSTA, GA – 15 federal indictments, unsealed today in federal court, have charged 24 defendants with federal firearms offenses. An additional 85 defendants were charged by the Augusta Division’s District Attorney’s Office on state burglary, theft, firearm and drug charges. The federal and state indictments follow a 7-month undercover investigation in the Augusta area dubbed “Operation Smoke Screen.”

The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office (RCSO), and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) initiated Operation Smoke Screen in August of 2011. As a result of this undercover operation, RCSO seized an estimated $500,000 in property and identified suspects in 104 burglaries, 12 car break-ins and 16 thefts. While guns were not the focus of the investigation, 64 firearms were recovered; many from convicted felons or individuals dealing in firearms without a license. A number of the guns seized during the undercover operation were reported stolen.

United States Attorney Edward J. Tarver stated, “Operation Smoke Screen is a great example of the successes that can be accomplished through the collaborative efforts of federal and local law enforcement agencies working together to protect the public. This operation serves as notice to the criminal element that if you traffic in stolen guns and other stolen items, law enforcement is watching and you will be prosecuted.”

“The right of citizens to feel safe in their homes is a basic freedom that we feel is worth protecting. The suspects that were targeted during this investigation were alleged to be involved in victimizing citizens of this community and putting guns into the hands of the criminal element,” said Special Agent in Charge Scott Sweetow, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Atlanta Field Division. “ATF actively partners with federal, state and local law enforcement agencies to stem firearms-related violent crime. We applaud the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office for initiating this multi-faceted investigation aimed at seizing stolen property to include dozens of stolen firearms.”

Following numerous arrests today, initial appearances for several of the federally indicted defendants were held in United States District Court, Augusta, Georgia. The arrests today were undertaken by the RCSO, the United States Marshal Service, the Georgia State Patrol Aviation Division and the ATF RAGE Unit, which consists of members from the ATF, the North Augusta Department of Public Safety, the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office and the Aiken Department of Public Safety. A listing of the 24 defendants recently indicted on federal charges is attached.

Mr. Tarver stressed that an indictment is only an accusation and is not evidence of guilt. All defendants are entitled to a fair trial, during which it will be the Government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

Assistant United States Attorneys Lamont A. Belk and Nancy C. Greenwood are prosecuting the federal cases for the United States. For additional information, please contact First Assistant United States Attorney James D. Durham at (912) 201-2547.

(Aiken, SC) – An Aiken County man with a long history of drug, gun, domestic violence and other arrests over the past 15 years in South Carolina – is jailed this morning – and is being held for the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol; Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) in connection with federal charges in Georgia.

34-year-old Adonis Moment of Aiken has a long list of drug charges over past decade and a half including crack cocaine, cocaine, ecstasy, LSD and crystal methamphetamine.

The latest charges against moment were filed Thursday including that ATF hold and a family court bench warrant for failure to pay.

However, on Nov. 7, 2017, a federal grand jury sitting in Augusta, GA indicted Moment on two charges involving his arrest in Richmond County on Sept. 27, 2017 – possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a firearm by a person convicted of domestic violence.

Moment was also arrested in in separate cases in January, May and July 2017 on numerous felonies however jail records state a judge release Moment and dismissed many of the felonies.

In fact, it is unclear how Moment has repeatedly managed to receive – in-effect –  a “get out of jail card” by judges in Aiken County.

The Georgia Department of Corrections has announced its investigating an inmate death in Augusta, GA – and it claims it is the fourth suicide in recent days and the fifth in about a month.

In fact, it is clear that violence, murder and alleged suicides are way out of control in Georgia prisons.

Just as in northern Michigan, inmates in Georgia area dropping like flies – accusations of brutality have long plagued prisons like Reidsville State Prison– and South Eastern Social Justice Breaking News has put together the resources to probe Augusta area prisons – as we have done in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

In Michigan, our sister news service has revealed state inmate death coverups and even caught the state lying about whether a riot was underway – but we force4d the state to admit the Kinross riot.

At 8:30 a.m., Emergency Medical Services arrived on scene and the inmate was pronounced deceased at 8:34 a.m. by the EMT.

Bradshaw was sentenced to Life Without Parole in 2009, in Putnam County, for a Milledgeville Murder, Aggravated Assault and Robbery in the March 2008 beating death of Earl Gil.

Two McDuffie County men – a father and son – were also convicted of the crime. They are Mims Michael Morris Sr., 55, of Sardis; and Mims Michael Morris Jr., 26, of Sardis.

On March 15, 2008, the men gave 44-year-old Earl Eugene Gill $25 to purchase marijuana, but Gill was unable to obtain the drugs. Authorities say when he returned empty-handed, the men beat him then dumped him in Putnam County. Gill died 11 days later.

BRADSHAW v. THE STATE.

S16A1070

    Decided: October 31, 2016

Appellant Roy Lee Bradshaw was tried and convicted of malice murder and related offenses in connection with the March 2008 beating death of Earl Gill. Bradshaw appeals,1 alleging he received ineffective assistance of counsel and arguing that the trial court erred in admitting his custodial statements at trial. Finding no error, we affirm.

Viewed in the light most favorable to the jury’s verdict, the evidence adduced at trial establishes as follows. Earl Gill befriended Bradshaw, his wife Teresa, and the Morrises, Bradshaw’s co-defendants, while staying at an Econolodge in Milledgeville, Georgia. On March 15, 2008, Gill called his drug dealer, Michael Robbins, to arrange a drug buy for himself, Bradshaw, and the Morrises, funded by the group. Later that day, Gill drove with Robbins to a nearby Wal-Mart to complete the drug transaction. Upon their arrival at the store, Gill gave Robbins the group’s money. Robbins then entered the store under the pretense of completing the drug deal, but he never returned. After a fruitless search for Robbins, Gill walked back to the Econolodge and informed Bradshaw and the Morrises that Robbins had taken their money.

Believing that Gill was in on the theft, Bradshaw and the Morrises forced Gill into the back of Bradshaw’s van and, with Teresa in the driver’s seat,2 the group proceeded to ride around town in search of the stolen money. During the search, the men periodically struck Gill and, with each unsuccessful stop, they grew angrier and more convinced that Gill had stolen their money.

Eventually, Bradshaw had Teresa pull to the side of the road after which he and the Morrises dragged Gill from the vehicle and beat him for an extended period of time, finally leaving the victim for dead. Somehow, Gill managed to regain consciousness and stumble to a nearby home. When the owners saw Gill’s extensive injuries, they took him to the hospital where he died 9 days later from severe blunt force injuries to his head.

At trial, the jury heard many witnesses testify as to the numerous post-incident inculpatory statements made by Bradshaw, his wife, and the Morrises concerning their participation in Gill’s murder. Bradshaw also confessed to law enforcement that he and the Morrises beat the victim in the van and on the side of the road. Gill’s blood was found inside Bradshaw’s van, along with a bloody baseball bat and medium force velocity blood spatter, consistent with Gill being struck with a fist or bat.
