Comer police raid home, arresting owner and seizing guns, drugs and vehicles

A months-long investigation into a Comer man’s alleged drug dealings led to the seizure Monday of his vehicles, guns and drugs, according to the Comer Police Department.

 

Police arrested Mitchell David Brooks, 39, on several charges, including the sale of methamphetamine, possessing meth with the intent to distribute and using a phone to commit a felony. Comer Police Chief Kyle Roberts said that as the evidence is processed, Brooks could be charged with other crimes.

The raid occurred about 3:20 p.m. Monday at Brooks’ home on Hill Street. When police arrived, Brooks was not at home, but they encountered a visitor. That man, Norman Glenn Goodrich, 47, of Comer was charged with felony possession of meth and having drug-related objects.

“He happened to be there and the search warrant included everybody on the property,” Roberts said. “As soon as we searched him, he had a pretty good bit of methamphetamine and a pipe in his pocket.”

Roberts said police learned that Brooks was at his workplace in Danielsville, where police there arrested him. Brooks was searched and found with meth in his pocket, according to Roberts.

At the house, police seized 12 firearms and three vehicles. A forfeiture order was completed Tuesday and forwarded to the district’s attorney office for possible possession of the vehicles, he said.

“We have pretty good evidence over the last month that one of the trucks he sold (drugs) out of,” Roberts said.

Goodrich remained in jail Wednesday with bond set at $11,100. Brooks remains jailed without bond.
