Albany--Albany Dougherty Drug Unit agents say a routine traffic stop over the Holidays lead them to more than $52, 000 worth of marijuana and the man they charge was getting ready to sell it on Albany's streets.

 A.D.D.U.'s drug sniffing dog Coco helped start drug agents on the trail to find 11.6 pounds of marijuana. December 27th an ADDU patrol made a traffic stop, and Coco sniffed out a small amount of pot.

Investigators followed that pot to the source.  Two days later Drug Agents arrested 25 year old Frank Brown at his apartment on Kingstown Court, and found marijuana that Agents say has a street value of $52, 931.

Drug agents say they will keep cracking down on more drug dealers this way. A.D.D.U. Commander Major Derrell Smith said "I know people see those silver cars out all the time, wondering why they are making traffic stops, when we are supposed to be out here looking for drugs. But that's how drugs get into town, they are coming with vehicles."

Brown is being held at the Dougherty County jail on drug trafficking and possession charges.
