meth bust

Law enforcement found two kilograms of methamphetamine and $2,000 in cash during a traffic stop. 

The GBI Southwestern Regional Drug Enforcement Office, along with the Colquitt County Sheriff’s Office, Grady County Sheriff’s Office, and Thomas County Sheriff’s Office, conducted a joint investigation into methamphetamine trafficking by a Grady County resident.

Noah Melvin Sangster Jr., age 60, was arrested Saturday and charged with trafficking methamphetamine.

According to the GBI, police performed a traffic stop on Sangster as he was traveling southbound on Highway 33 toward Moultrie. During the stop, a Colquitt County deputy deployed a K9 to conduct an open-air search around the vehicle. The K9 alerted and provided probable cause for a search of the vehicle. 

A search of the vehicle resulted in the seizure of two kilograms of methamphetamine and $2,000 in U.S. Currency.

The GBI Southwestern Regional Drug Enforcement Office is in Albany and services 42 counties in Southwest Georgia. The office is a collaborative effort between the GBI, the Albany Police Department, the Dougherty County Sheriff’s Office, the Dougherty County Police Department, the Dougherty County District Attorney’s Office, and the Colquitt County Sheriff’s Office, and is partially funded with Byrne/JAG grant funds.
