Valdosta - A Lowndes County man pleaded guilty Wednesday to federal drug charges.

Christopher Tobbie was indicted for possession with intent to distribute cocaine and crack cocaine.

He was arrested in 2005 after a Lowndes County deputy stopped the car he was riding in.

He consented to a search when the deputy thought she smelled marijuana.

Tobbie had more than 50-grams of powder cocaine and 40-grams of crack.

He'll be sentenced in the next 60-days and could get anywhere from five to 40-years in prison.
