THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Thomas county drug agents made a big ecstasy bust this week.

They found more than 250 pills in a Thomasville man's home.

Agents got a tip that 25-year old Quinton Tillman would deliver some pills near a convenience store at the corner of Pinetree and Smith.

When agents arrested him, they found a loaded hand gun and 10 pills. They later searched his home and found 242 more pills.

Drug agents say ecstasy is dangerous.

"It makes your heart rate go up, makes your body temperature go up, you can have a stroke, heat stroke, heart attacks. They call it the party drug. But it can really do damage to your brain, do damage to your heart," says Kevin Lee, with Thomas Co. Narcotics.

The pills seized are worth about five thousand dollars.
