Bibb County Sheriff’s Office drug investigators, members of the Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force (S.E.R.F.T.), and Bibb Sheriff’s patrol deputies arrested two individuals in connection with Felony Probation Warrants and Drug charges.

It was reported that the Bibb Sheriff’s Office received a tip that two individuals, with active warrants, were staying in the Econo Lodge Inn and Suites. The hotel was located at 4709 Chambers Road. Investigators, patrol deputies, and members of the S.E.R.F.T., went to the hotel to make contact with the two wanted individuals.

Simmons had an active Felony Probation warrant for the original charge of Aggravated Assault, and Cranford had an active Felony Probation warrant for the original charge of Shoplifting.

Both individuals were in a hotel room at the Econo Lodge Inn and Suites when they were taken into custody.
