Virginia man charged with dealing drugs in Alpharetta


February 17, 2014
ALPHARETTA, Ga. – A suspected drug dealer was arrested Feb. 4 on Ga. 400 after he was allegedly caught speeding.

Police on Ga. 400 noted that about 2 p.m., a vehicle with Virginia plates was driving erratically, speeding, changing lanes frequently and braking hard. The officer pulled over Earnest Lee Akins Jr., 54, of Herndon, Va., who admitted his license was suspended. A search of his car turned up nearly $9,000 in cash and 280 grams of marijuana in the trunk. A further $895 was found on him.

Akins claimed the money belonged to his millionaire athlete brother-in-law and denied any knowledge of the drugs.

Akins was arrested for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, following vehicles too closely and driving with a suspended license.
