DeKalb County makes another big drug bust

For the second time in four days, the DeKalb County Sheriff's Department has shut down a major drug-making operation.

Authorities raided the home of Arthur Winston Greiner, 38, Monday on Country Road 892 in Collinsville.

They arrested Greiner and then charged him with several drug counts after allegedly finding marijuana, several guns, and other evidence of narcotics inside of his house. 

"Our officers are working very hard to root out drug involvement all over the county. The recent activity on Lookout Mountain is evidence of that, " said Sheriff Jimmy Harris.

Greiner was transported to the DeKalb County Jail, where he is awaiting bond.

Greiner's house is approximately four miles from the location that was raided in Dogtown on Friday, although the two are not believed to be related to one another.
