A drug suspect suffered minor injuries Monday afternoon when Albany Dougherty Drug Unit officers busted him.

Agents found more than 600 prescription pills in his pocket.

Take a look at some of those pills enclosed in evidence bags by drug agents.

They found ecstasy, oxycotin, xanax, vicaden, and loratabs in the man's pocket along with $2500 dollars in cash.

A tip led drug agents to pull over the man's car at Archwood Drive and North Westover about 2 PM.

The man ran through the Cracker Barrel parking lot.

"They were able to catch him there. He sustained injuries when they went to arrest him, because he fell and hit his head on the asphalt as they tackled him," said A.D.D.U. Commander Major Bill Berry.

The suspect was taken to the hospital.

Drug agents say when he's released, they'll charge him with possession with intent to distribute controlled substances and possibly resisting arrest.

A woman who was in the car was questioned but has not been charged.
