Thomasville- Authorities are celebrating a big crack bust in Thomasville.

     Jerome Brown has been charged with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute. He was originally stopped for a seatbelt violation. But after police noticed a marijuana seed, they searched the car. That's when they found 45-pieces of crack in the glove compartment. "To have that many in that one location in the vehicle, that is clearly intending to do something with it other than use it personally. So that is a very big find. It's a good find," says Thomasville Police Sergeant Rachelle Denmark.

     Police say that amount of crack could supply a lot of users in a city the size of Thomasville. Officers have issued a warrant for Brown's passenger, Raymond Goings. They say he ran from the scene.
