During a road check, GSP stopped a man, identified as 29-year-old Dreon Markale Neal, in the area of MLK Jr. Drive and Carter Street.
Georgia State Patrol troopers say they’ve seized roughly a pound of meth
Through testing, troopers said they determined Neal was driving under the influence so they stopped him and searched his vehicle.
During the search of his vehicle, Neal ran away but troopers were able to take him back into custody, GSP said.
Inside the car, troopers found a Glock handgun, 15 clear baggies of methamphetamine that weighed about a pound together, and about $6,000 in cash.
Based on the evidence, Neal was arrested and charged with multiple crimes including trafficking in methamphetamines, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, escaping, and driving under the influence.
