A search of the vehicle reviled over 60 grams of methamphetamine, 6 grams of Crack Cocaine, and 7 grams of powder Fentanyl as well as drug paraphernalia. 

DeKalb County Sheriff Nick Welden said of the incident: "Drug addiction destroys not only the addict, but also the ones who love them.  Our goal is to stop it before it starts and that is why our Agents are out continuously working diligently in an attempt to keep these dangerous drugs off the streets and out of the hands of our youth."

"God Bless!" Concluded Sheriff Welden.
