THOMASVILLE — Thomas County/Thomasville Narcotics/Vice Division agents were waiting when two men arrived at a Remington Avenue business in a rolling drug outlet.

Agents had received a tip that James Smith, 19, of 210 S. College St., would deliver powder cocaine to the business.

“We saw Smith get out of a vehicle and walked to the back door of the business,” said Kevin Lee, narcotics/vice commander.

Soon, Smith returned to the vehicle, which was driven by Desmond Jamer Bowdry, 23, of 115 Georgia Ave. Bowdry was recently released from prison after serving time for a drug conviction.

Agents approached the car and — in plain view — saw two bags of marijuana in the front-seat console. Four small bags of powder cocaine were found on the front floor of the vehicle.

Some 15 small bags of marijuana were in Smith’s pocket.

Smith and Bowdry were arrested and charged with marijuana possession with intent to distribute and cocaine possession with intent to distribute.

“They’re players,” Lee said.

The drug load being delivered had a street value of $300 to $400.
