Thomasville--  Wednesday, police arrested 25-year-old Frank Lamar Bowdry, Jr. with nearly a pound of marijuana.  The following day they nabbed Nathaniel Dunbar with seven grams of cocaine in his possesion.

Narcotics agents say it's not uncommon for drug activity to pick up this time of year.   "A lot of times, things do pick up in the summer, people more out on the streets because of the warm weather. So a lot of times it does pick up in the summer time," commented Kevin Lee, Commander of Thomas County's Narcotics/Vice Division.

Bowdry was first arrested at some apartment buildings at Young and Monroe streets in Thomasville where police had gotten information about a drug deal.

They found 3 ounces of marijuana on him there. Then, he led them back to his mother's house and showed them where he had stashed 11 more ounces of marijuana, packaged and ready to be sold.
