BROXTON, GA (WALB) -

After searching a home in Broxton, the Douglas-Coffee Drug Unit found drugs and arrested one person they say was working to sell meth, cocaine, and other drugs.

Devonte Bivens was arrested and charged with Trafficking Cocaine, Possession of Methamphetamine with Intent to Distribute, Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Distribute and Possession of a Schedule IV Controlled Substance with Intent to Distribute.

Detectives found 49 grams of cocaine, ½ ounce of methamphetamine, over ¼ pound of marijuana, what was believed to be ground-up Xanax packaged in cellophane, and digital scales. Officers also seized more than $1,100 in cash.

An initial court date for Bivens was not immediately available.
