4 INJURED IN U.S. 80 CRASH

SAVANNAH, GA (July 1, 2015): Major Accident Investigation Team (MAIT) officers are investigating a two-car crash on US Highway 80 East this afternoon that injured four occupants, two seriously.

Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police responded at 1:21 p.m. to the collision in front of Fort Pulaski just west of Tybee Island.

A 2010 Toyota Prius being driven west bound on U.S. 80 had struck the left-side doors of a 2012 Hyundai Elantra that was exiting the driveway to Fort Pulaski and attempting to turn east. The impact caused the Hyundai to rotate onto the south side of Hwy 80 in the marsh line.

Allison Scarboro, 19, of Savannah, driver of the Hyundai, and Allan Croder, 20, of Ithica, NY, a passenger in her car, were transported to Memorial University Medical University with serious injuries. Hellen Savidge, 19, of Savannah, another passenger in the Hyundai, and Anthony Zeppetella Jr., 21, of Savannah, driver of the Prius, were treated at the hospital for minor injuries.

MAIT continues to investigate the collision

2nd MAN CHARGED IN WEAPONS CASE

SAVANNAH, GA (July 1, 2015) Metro Police have charged a second man after finding nine highly explosive military grade rounds in a warehouse on April 1.

Lamont Dwayne Bryant, 43, was served with warrants for 9 counts of possession of explosives in the Chatham County Detention Center today after being arrested by Pooler Police on Tuesday.

Wesley Defreitas, 49, had been arrested on April 2 at his business, Warrior’s Gear, on warrants drawn by members of the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Undercover Narcotics Investigation Team (UNIT.)

Unit officers had worked in support of federal agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives who were investigating a storage facility being used as a warehouse for Warrior’s Gear. Defreitas was on bond for a federal indictment for illegally selling weapons to unauthorized purchasers in a raid by ATF and Metro officers last year.

While searching the storage facility, agents and officers seized a shotgun and nine 40mm HEDP (Highly Explosive Dual Purpose) rounds. The rounds are designed to destroy light armored vehicles and are to be possessed only by military in time of combat.

ATF and UNIT officers continue to investigate the business and associated activities.
