Man arrested after heroin, marijuana, stolen firearms seized in Clayton County

A Hampton man faces nearly a dozen charges after drugs and several stolen firearms were seized Thursday, authorities said.

Desmond Lamar Bailey, 31, was taken into custody following a sting at a house off Togwatee Pass, the Clayton County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release. Deputies executed a search warrant at the address, finding four types of drugs and 11 firearms — four of which were stolen.

Deputies seized more than seven pounds of marijuana, nine grams of heroin, 22 grams of ecstasy and six grams of suspected synthetic marijuana, the release said. The sheriff’s office released a photo of the items taken into evidence, which also appears to include several containers filled with an unknown amount of cash.

Bailey was booked into the county’s jail on four counts of theft by receiving, five drug-related charges, one count of possession of a firearm by a felon and one count of violating the prohibition on nude or sexually explicit electronic transmissions, according to online jail records. The release by the sheriff’s office did not elaborate on the last charge, which is Georgia’s “revenge porn” law.
