Two more suspects arrested in Hall Co. drug operation

By B.J. Williams News Director
GAINESVILLE - Hall County drug agents continue to round up suspects in an undercover drug operation that became public last week.

Lt. Scott Ware with the county's Multi Agency Narcotics Squad said Wednesday that Joshua Marquis Nicely, 20, of Gainesville and Benjamin Andrew Durfy, of Lawrenceville were arrested Tuesday.

Nicely was charged with sale of cocaine and a superior court probation warrant, while Durfy was charged with possession of MDMA with the intent to distribute. Ware said most of the suspects in the operation were charged with possession and sale of cocaine, although sale of some other drugs also was involved.

Ware said 10 of the total 27 suspects implicated in the round-up remain at large.
