A six-month investigation by the Decatur Police Department’s Organized Crime Unit into the sale of illegal drugs has led to charges against a mother and three children.
The four Decatur family members were arrested Wednesday and each charged with two counts of unlawful distribution of a controlled substance, Investigator Jamie Hammons said.
They are Betty Taylor Cunningham, 50, of 2916 Wimberly Drive S.W., Apt. B, and her children, George Edward Cunningham, 28, of the same address, Joshua Lamar Taylor, 32, of 1601 Beech Street and Tashua Lashun Fuqua, 29, of 224 11th Ave. S.W.
An officer said they remained in Decatur City Jail this morning. They will be transferred to Morgan County Jail, each held in lieu of bail totaling $10,000.
Hammons said during the past six months, a cooperating witness under the supervision of the Organized Crime Unit bought prescription pills and marijuana multiple times from each member of the family within a three-mile radius of Decatur City Schools and public housing.
Hammons said most of the sales occurred in different locations throughout the city.
