Canton Truck driver nicked with booze, coke

March 14, 2014
ALPHARETTA, Ga. – When a dump truck driver was arrested for possession of alcohol in a commercial vehicle, his cocaine stash landed him in more trouble.

Police spotted Enrique Agreda-Medina, 39, of Canton, as he stepped out of a dump truck across the street from the liquor store on South Main Street where he bought some beer.

The officer watching him was previously a commercial vehicle inspector, and notes it is against the law for alcoholic beverages to be kept in a commercial vehicle.

When Agreda-Medina tried to drive away, he was pulled over. When he supplied his license, it turned out to be suspended.

A search of the vehicle allegedly turned up a case of beer as well as a coffee mug containing two plastic bags – one with suspected marijuana and the other with suspected cocaine.

Agreda-Medina was arrested for possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana, driving with a cancelled license and driving without a seatbelt.

    Impared Commercial Driver

    Another fine example of our "Law abiding" Citizens from South of the border. Does it bother anyone else that this Hispanic Gentleman was out on the Georgia Highways, operating a commercial vehicle while having the ability to kill and maim innocent legal drivers? What company did this guy work for, or was the Dump Truck his? Someone needs to be held responsible. Kudos to the alert Law Enforcement Officer that nabbed our wayward scuff law.

    The Colonel Should be a Detective

    I didn't read anywhere in the story that this person was in the country illegally, or even suspected.

    Perhaps the police could use the colonel's help in powers of deductive reasoning.

    Perhaps we should all just feel better when our friends and neighbors are killed and maimed by the lighter skinned meth-heads? Was that the point?

    Rebuttal to Jolly Roger's comment

    Read the comment again. I didn't make any reference to the law breaker as being an illegal alien in this country with out proper papers. For all I know Mr. Medina might have been born inside the District of Columbia (that would be Washington, just in case you don't know that either), my comment simply stated that he was of Hispanic decent, which his name clearly implies, and that he choose NOT to obey the laws of the land, and especially those of the State of Georgia! Next lesson: He was driving a Dump Truck, which requires a specialized drivers license, and further more, he had to pass a ridged test to obtain that commercial grade license (which by the way was suspended - or didn't you read that either?)his testing taught him that if he drank any alcohol while operating that commercial vehicle he would loose that license and the right to drive these Heavy Duty Trucks (Class 7, 8, or 9 trucks). Next, he in possession of Cocaine and Marijuana inside this Commercial Vehicle. All I stated was that he was of Hispanic heritage, that he was a "Scuff Law" (meaning a lawbreaker -not an illegal alien without proper paperwork) the fact that I said "another fine example of our Law Abiding Citizens from South off the Border" only implies that All of the Spanish speaking Countries lay South of our borders: Cuba, Mexico, all of Central America, and South America. As to my helping the police with my deductive reasoning - well, Thank You, I do that as often as I can. It's my duty to speak out when I see something that is not legal or right. So Jolly Roger of Cumming, maybe you should brush up on your reading comprehension and Geography because nothing I stated accused Mr. Agreda - Medina of being illegal, but only of having "roots from South of the Border", but yes, I did say he was a law breaker, and that if he operated that big truck under the influence at any time, he was a clear Danger to everyone on the road (including you).
