Michael Oliver

The Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team needs your help to find a wanted man. 

  CNT is seeking 30-year-old Michael Paul “MP” Oliver of Richmond Hill.  Oliver is wanted in connection with a two month long CNT investigation during which time investigators say Oliver sold crack cocaine on two separate occasions , both in Bryan County. 

   CNT officials describe Oliver is described as a black male, 5ft, 10in, 150 pounds with brown eyes, black hair, normally cut low and is known to have a mustache and/or goatee.  His last known addresses are 2508 Harris Trail Road, 579 Rice Gate Drive and 201 Casey Drive; all located in Richmond Hill.

   Anyone with information concerning Oliver’s whereabouts is asked to call CNT at 912-652-3900 or CrimeStoppers at 912-234-2020 where callers can remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward. 

Okay. I know you must be thinking the same thing. A 2 month investigation and he sold crack TWO times during that time. Just twice? His full-time real job couldn’t quite pay the bills, so he had to sell crack on just two occasions to make ends meet.

It sounds so super silly and lends no credibility to the story or the writer. 

I am going to research this man’s name and see what other articles I can find. BRB

The time says WSAV posted their article first and lends the name

Is this normal procedure that their share stories and then give themselves the credit?


Savannah Now has the same article, but they do not credit the article or provide its source.

If we now check out the times, we see that Savannah Now posted it first!


And just for the sake of looking, I could not find him on Facebook.

I would have liked to see some more information on this guy. He has a mug shot, so what are his previous arrest?

How do they know he sold crack twice? Did they do one stakeout each month?

It is so bad it seems fake.

Maybe it’s the cold medicine, but why bother printing this? 

Or do you think the police provided the information and this is what they said to print?
