Narcotics agents have found illegal drugs stashed in strange places.
A recent drug bust involved marijuana concealed in a cereal box, said Kevin Lee, Thomas County/Thomasville Narcotics/Vice Division.
Agents learned marijuana was being sold from a residence at 915 Madison Alley, Apartment B, and executed a search warrant at the dwelling.
In the kitchen, officers found marijuana — and cereal — in a cereal box. Digital scales were found in a nearby plastic container.
The resident, Eddie Eugene Hudson Jr., 30, is charged with marijuana possession with intent to distribute.
“We recognize that these people using, and more often selling, illegal drugs, have all the time in the world and dream up places to hide and conceal drugs so we can’t find them,” Lee said. “ ... This will show the depth they will go to to try to hide contraband at their residence.”
The commander said agents look for drugs everywhere imaginable.
Also at the apartment, which is under the Madison Street overpass, agents found numerous partially smoked marijuana cigars in a bedroom.
Hudson remains in the Thomas County Jail. In addition to the felony drug charge, he is being held on a probation violation for a prior conviction of firearm possession by a convicted felon.
