THOMAS CO., GA (WALB) - Two men are in the Thomas County Jail after narcotics agents made a major meth bust.

Officers made the arrest after they received a tip that two men would be delivering meth into Coolidge.

29-year-old Jason Baird and 32-year-old Joseph Walters are being charged with possession of meth with the intent to distribute.

Officers found 16 grams of ice, a form methamphetamine.

Thomas County Narcotics/Vice Division Commander Kevin Lee said, “For this area, that is a significant amount.  Ice is generally manufactured over in Mexico and brought here and distributed out through here. So this is a pretty good amount for our county.”

Both men are from Colquitt county.
