Four men were arrested Thursday by agents with the Bartow-Cartersville Drug Task Force (FBI Safe Streets Task Force), Federal Bureau of Investigations, Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, and Calhoun Police Department Drug Unit. They were arrested for various drug and weapons charges ranging from possession of a firearm during the commission of a VGCSA felony to sale of marijuana and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.

According to Bartow County Sheriff Clark Millsap and Cartersville Police Chief Tommy Culpepper, on Thursday agents and the Bartow County Sheriff's Office SWAT Team executed search warrants at 134 Bishop Road and 345 Bishop Road in Cartersville.

During the execution of the search warrants agents seized pounds of marijuana, assault rifles, scales, and U.S. currency. Culpepper and Millsap said agents are still following information gathered during this investigation and expect more arrests in the near future.
