Wayne County Sheriff Barry Virts reports the arrest of three people following an investigation into the distribution of narcotics at a Spoor Road residence in Savannah.
at 1438 VanDyne Spoor Road, Savannah.
The Wayne County Probation Department secured a search warrant for 1438 VanDyne Spoor Road, which is the residence of 40-year-old Adam Thomas who lives at the address.
He was on probation from a previous arrest, according to Virts, who says the Sheriff’s Office assisted with the search. Investigators located and secured a large quantity of crack cocaine packaged in multiple for sale bags as well as bulk bags.
Also located in the residence was a moderate amount of marihuana as well as scales, smoking utensils and a quantity of cash in small denomination bills.
There were multiple small quantity bags of cocaine located on the floor, as well as small amounts of loose marihuana on the floor of the residence, which was accessible to four children. Sheriff Virts says the children were between 3-months and 8-years-old.
Subsequently, Thomas and his girlfriend Lissanne R. Livingston, 25, were both charged with one count of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third degree with the intent to sell a narcotic drug. Virts says it’s a Class B felony. They were also charged with one count of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third degree, which is a Class B felony, as well.
The duo were charged with four counts of endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor.
Also charged was Crystal L. Kirkey, 32, of Savannah, with one count of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh degree, a misdemeanor, and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
All three were arraigned in the Town of Savannah before Justice Sloan where Thomas was remanded to the Wayne County Jail with no bail due to having three previous felony convictions.
Livingston was remanded to the jail with $2,500 cash bail or $5,000 insurance bond. Meanwhile, Kirkey was remanded to the jail in lieu of $750 cash bail or $1,500 insurance bond.
A stay away order of protection was issued between Kirkey and her children.
All three will have additional court action at a later date.
