A release from the Habersham County Sheriff's Office said the arrests are all connected to an investigation that started in January when an inmate at the county jail was assaulted. The first arrests were made in a traffic stop on April 13 when three people were jailed for methamphetamine and marijuana charges.

The rest of the arrests were made during the execution of search warrants at two separate residences in Demorest and Alto on April 21.

The list of suspects arrested and their charges is below:
