COBB COUNTY, Ga. Nov. 28, 2007
A two-year veteran of the Marietta Police Department, Isaac Saleumsy, 30, is in the Gwinnett County Jail after being arrested Tuesday morning as part of a wide-ranging drug raid that could have international ramifications, according to officials.
Saleumsy’s neighbors said he was arrested near his home near Columns Drive around 5 a.m. Witnesses said dozens of officers, including DEA agents, were on the scene.
Local television news Channel 2 has uncovered an indictment that said Saleumsy was arrested as part of a conspiracy to possess and distribute the drug, Ecstasy. There were more than 30 names on the indictment.
Neighbors said it appeared agents seized drugs when they were at Saleumsy’s home.
Marietta Police said they will hold a news conference later today, Wednesday, to address the situation. Officer Selumsy has been suspended pending his upcoming termination, according to officials.
There was no information yet as to whether Saleumsy posted bond and police say that more information will be released in today’s news conference.
