CRISP COUNTY, GA (WALB) -

Another drug bust on Interstate 75 Wednesday.

A Crisp County Sheriff's deputy found 18 marijuana cigarettes and a few grams of meth when he stopped a car for speeding Wednesday morning.

The driver and two passengers from Orlando were charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.

Deputies say people are getting more creative when hiding drugs.

"Throughout some of the training that Deputy Purvis and I received, there are different ways people are concealing narcotics these days. Putting it in a bag in the trunk, putting it in Christmas presents around Christmas time. Hiding it natural voids in the cars," said Deputy George Camp, Jr.

Deputies say the women arrested had their drugs hidden in potato chip bags.
