ALPHARETTA, Ga. — Police found a man with methamphetamine and Narcan, a drug used to treat overdoses, when they pulled a man over on a traffic violation.

The officers had been patrolling on Mansell Road at 10 p.m., Sept 4 when they saw a car drive past that their system flagged as having no insurance.

When they pulled over the car, police noticed the driver, later identified as 37-year-old Chad Richardson of Cumming, was breathing rapidly and his hands were shaking. One officer noted track marks on his arms that were indicative of drug use.

Police asked Richardson when he had last used meth, and Richardson replied two days ago. They found a plastic bag with crystal meth, two glass meth pipes, five Suboxone pills that were not prescribed to him, seven syringes and one milliliter of Narcan.

Richardson was arrested for possession of meth, possession of a schedule III drug, possession of drug-related objects and operating a vehicle without insurance.
