An Elizabethton man is one of two individuals arrested by the Johnson City Police Department on Friday involving an investigation into crack cocaine trafficking that spanned several jurisdictions.
According to the JCPD, Shareef Goddard, 18, 109 Oscar Banks Road A-30, and Filemon Timana, 19, 118 Wilson Ave., Johnson City, were arrested after an investigation into the location of Timana, who is wanted on a federal warrant charging him with conspiracy to traffic cocaine in New York City. A joint investigation by the JCPD, New York Police Department and FBI led officers to the whereabouts of Timana, according to police.
During the arrest, Goddard, identified by police as an associate of Timana, was allegedly found in possession of 10 grams of crack cocaine packaged for resale. Goddard was also carrying a large amount of cash, police said.
Police seized a 1988 Nissan Altima and over $1,000 in cash, according to the JCPD. Both men are currently being held in the Washington County Detention Center without bond. They are scheduled to appear in General Sessions Court for a preliminary hearing on Monday.
