THOMASVILLE — Suspects in two drug busts told narcotics agents where they could find drugs.

Agents learned Eric Taylor, a Grady County resident wanted on felony drug warrants, would be at an Old Cassidy Road residence. Lawmen also learned methamphetamine would be at the house.

No one was at home when Thomas County/Thomasville Narcotics/Vice Division agents arrived. Before long, a blue pickup truck arrived.

“(Eric) Taylor was driving the vehicle,” said Kevin Lee, narcotics/vice commander.

As agents prepared to search Taylor and the truck, the suspect told officers they would find methamphetamine in the pocket of a jacket in the vehicle.

“We found two bags containing methamphetamine,” Lee said. “It wound up being 3.8 grams combined.”

The drug had a street value of $300.

Taylor, 39, 606 Pope Store Road, Ochlocknee, is charged with methamphetamine possession with intent to distribute.

In another case, Joseph Cade told agents they would find powder cocaine in his pants pocket.

Officers were told Friday they would find cocaine in a burgundy Saturn scheduled to deliver the drug to a U.S. 19 North motel.

Shortly after surveillance was established, the Saturn arrived at the rear of the motel with Cade at the wheel and Cleveland Watson a front-seat passenger.

A bag of powder cocaine was found in Cade’s pants, Lee said. Four more plastic bags of powder coke, along with many empty bags and scales, were found in the vehicle’s console.

The bags of cocaine had a street value of $50 each.

Lee said $640 was seized from Watson, 20, 427 Griffin Road, who is charged with cocaine possession with intent to distribute.

Cade, 19, Coolidge, is charged with cocaine possession.
