Eight carloads of FBI agents recently executed a warrant and searched the Clinch County chambers of the chief judge of Georgia’s Alapaha Judicial Circuit, a Clinch County commissioner said.

Fifteen FBI agents spent at least nine hours searching the chambers of Brooks E. Blitch III, chief judge of the south Georgia circuit, said Barry Hart, the Clinch Commission’s vice chairman. Blitch is married to former Georgia legislator Peg Blitch, who retired from the Georgia General Assembly in 2005. His chambers are in the Clinch County Courthouse in Homerville, the county seat.
