Police say a Sylvester car wash owner was selling drugs from his business.

35-year old Chris Hooks owns D-Mans Car Wash on Pope Street... but police think it may have been a cover for a drug business.

Sylvester Police... Poulan Police... And GBI Agents raided the business Friday.

Hooks was in his truck and took off.

Officers followed him and quickly arrested him.

He told police he ate some of the cocaine but they still found quite a bit at the car wash.

"We were able to recover powder cocaine, crack cocaine, marijuana and a little less than 600 dollars in cash," said Investigator Ronnie Graddy.

Hooks faces several charges..including sale of cocaine with intent to distribute. He is now free on bond.
