SOUTHEAST -

A drug bust has landed a Southeast man behind bars.

The county sheriff's office says they arrested Sulaiman Sayegh, 50,  and recovered more than $14,000 and a large amount of cocaine from his home on Eagles Ridge Road.

Sayegh is being charged with criminal drug possession and intent to sell.          

The bust comes after a monthslong investigation into drug-dealing in the area. Undercover detectives say they purchased drugs from Sayegh on at least four different occasions.

He's being held in the Putnam Correctional Facility on $7,500 cash bail or $15,000 bond.
