Meth, Guns Seized in 7 Houston County Raids

Drugs and guns were seized at seven SWAT team raids in Houston County, law enforcement authorities said.

Warner Robins police and the Houston County sheriff's department had a news conference to discuss the raids.

They said they executed seven search warrants simultaneously last week. Eight people were arrested, they said.

They said they seized more than a dozen marijuana plants, some cocaine and nearly $17,000 worth of methamphetamine.

Also seized: several weapons, 13 pit bulls and more than $61,000 in cash.

Authorities said one of the suspects, Frank Fountain Jr, was an officer at the Eastman Youth Detention Center. But they said they do not believe he was bringing contraband into the YDC.

They said the ringleader was 40-year-old Andrew Martin Holliday of Kathleen.

Two Local Zaxby's Locations Had Data Security Breach

A Warner Robins and Milledgeville Zaxby's have been affected by a data security breach.

Zaxby's Franchising, Inc. announced Monday that the company pinpointed certain restaurant locations that have suspicious files on their systems, according to a news release.

Possibly affected locations include the Zaxby's on Warren Street in Warner Robins and the one on Columbia Street in Milledgeville.

They say this may have led to unauthorized access to credit and debit card information, and that they have notified law enforcement authorities. Zaxby's has not specified dates during which the breach may have happened.

The company has not yet been able to tell whether information left the system, however. Zaxby's has since started adding additional security measures to prevent future breaches.

Northside Students Caught with Unloaded Gun

Two students at Northside High School in Warner Robins were caught with an unloaded gun Thursday morning.

Houston County superintendent Dr. Robin Hines tells 13WMAZ that the students were seen having an "odd conversation" during breakfast. A teacher then followed the pair to the bathroom.

There the teacher saw one of the students try to hide something in his jacket. 

The student revealed it was a gun and put it on the floor as the teacher demanded.

Hines could not identify the students because they are minors, and he declined to share what consequences they face. 

However, he said the police typically are involved in situations like this and expulsion is an option.
