BOSTON, GA (WALB) -

A suspected cocaine dealer is in jail tonight after being at the wrong place at the wrong time.

Boston police officer Blake Bass spotted 30-year old Anthony Presley's car parked at a closed city park around midnight.

After checking Presley's information, Bass learned Presley had outstanding warrants in Thomas County.

The officer also found several bags of cocaine in Presley's clothes.

"Probably personal use. There was a chance he was maybe getting rid of some of it. Wasn't a huge amount of cocaine, but definitely good to get somebody wanted off the street and charge him with felony cocaine possession," said Narcotics Commander Kevin Lee.

Presley is in the Thomas County Jail charged with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute.
