Alvin Sharriod AndersonA Franklin man was arrested on August 7 for the sale of cocaine. Alvin Sharriod Anderson, also known as Terrance Bernard Anderson, 26, allegedly sold cocaine to an informant for the Macon County Sheriff's Department.

In all, 41.5 grams of cocaine and thousands of dollars were seized from Anderson’s home. A pistol was also recovered.

“This was an effort by our undercover unit,” said Sheriff Robert Holland. “They had received information that this individual was selling narcotics and created a situation where an informant was sold significant amounts of cocaine.”

Anderson is currently being charged for multiple felonies including trafficking cocaine, selling cocaine, and maintaining a dwelling for a controlled substance. He is currently being held on a $50,000 bond for the multiple felonies committed in Macon County. Upon his arrest it was found that he had warrants out for his arrest in Butts County, Georgia which gained him an additional bond of $50,000. His court date is set for Thursday, Aug. 15.

“I am proud of the officers who were a part of this,” said Holland. “From myself and on behalf of our community, I want to thank them for everything they've done to get these narcotics off of the street.”
