The search Wednesday morning at a VFW Drive residence was part of “Operation Guarding Innocence,” an ongoing investigation into the distribution of child pornography over the Internet.
Watkinsville Police assisted agents of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation this morning as a search warrant was issued at a residence on VFW Drive. Police Chief Lee O'Dillon said the search was part of a months-long investigation into the distribution of child pornography over the Internet. "Basically they're just gathering evidence at this point to determine if there's enough evidence to charge anybody, make an arrest," he said.

The annual re-enactment of the Moore’s Ford Bridge Lynching is scheduled to take place Saturday, beginning at noon at the First African Baptist Church in Monroe. This is the 7th annual re-enactment of the July 25, 1946 murders of black sharecroppers George and Mae Murray Dorsey and Roger and Dorothy Malcom at Moore’s Ford Bridge on the Walton-Oconee County line.

Last year, a cold-case investigative unit out of Bauder College, with the help of…
