FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Two men were arrested recently for possession of marijuana and cocaine after they were stopped for driving 31 miles per hour in the left lane on Ga. 400.
A deputy working traffic saw the car approaching Exit 14 driving slowly and weaving in the fast lane.
Once stopped, the deputy saw the passenger “acting like he was asleep.” The 31-year-old driver said the 29-year-old passenger was intoxicated and he picked him up to go to Gwinnett County.
The deputy could smell marijuana coming from the car and asked the men to step out. When he did, the passenger reportedly continuously reached down toward the floorboard.
Deputies found a cut straw that had white residue on it, a makeshift tool some use to snort cocaine or similar substances.
The men said they didn’t have any illegal narcotics on them but the deputy found marijuana in a shoe. Two metal canisters that contained a white powdery substance and a ball of aluminum foil with marijuana were also found.
They were arrested for various counts of possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana and speed less than minimum.
