From a local prospective we were grateful for all the assistance we received in investigating and prosecuting this case," said Capt. Mark Mayton, commander of the Bartow-Cartersville Drug Task Force, in th release.

It has some signatures of a meth lab explosion, but I won't know until we get a search warrant to be able to get into the room and isolate that," Bartow-Cartersville Drug Task Force Commander Capt. Mark Mayton said, declining to detail the signatures present at the scene.
We've evacuated the entire floor that this happened on," Mayton said. The occupants of the room were not at the scene and, as of press time, were not in custody. Mayton declined to comment on their identity. While waiting for a search warrant for the room, Mayton said the investigation would determine whether the room's occupants were indeed manufacturing meth. "It's going to depend on what we find in there. The air is going to have to be sampled. We have to use air monitoring equipment just to make sure there's no explosive levels of gases in there," he said.

Bartow County-Cartersville Drug Task Force Commander Mark Mayton said the men charged in the case had passed around business cards locally to advertise the service.
Mark Mayton said. "People are out there stealing to get that next drug buy."
Seven of Mayton's team were in September extended federal jurisdiction, meaning they have the power to execute a federal arrest and lodge federal charges.
The local DTF teamed with Floyd and Polk County police, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation through the FBI's Safe Streets Violent Crime Initiative. The group works in conjunction with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
"The agreement allows us to apprehend and federally prosecute gang members, violent criminals and higher-level drug dealers, which is our mission," Mayton said.
The drugs were worth $42,000 on the wholesale market with a street value of "substantially more," according to DTF Commander Mark Mayton.
An Atlanta man and a Doraville man were each arrested and charged with trafficking drugs. The charge, described as Tier III, carries a prison sentence of up to 20 years. That level of punishment, the highest, pertains to 28 grams or more, while 1/4 to 1 gram is a user amount.
Mayton said the operation was significant due to the amount of heroin involved, but also because it is not a common drug used in Bartow County.

"Their nose is tenfold times better than the human nose," DTF Commander Capt. Mark Mayton said.
Halo is actually considered an officer, or a member of this task force," Mayton said.
We don't move forward unless there is some legal basis for us to move forward in a case, and sometimes because, I think, of a lack of exposure to what we do, our careers, our discipline that we practice, that people just don't understand ... It's not because anyone is less intelligent; it's just they're not exposed to it on a daily basis," Mayton said.
Because the DTF duo is it for Bartow, Mayton said the agency is looking to add to the unit.
According to Mayton, the cost to get a K-9 unit off the ground runs between $45,000 and $65,000, minus the handler's wages.
We help other municipalities in the county, other agencies outside this county, federal agencies," Mayton said.
