Americus man arrested on multiple drug charges

AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - Timmothy Alan Ruff, who lives on north Jackson Street, was arrested Wednesday afternoon on Cherokee Street, by the Americus Police Department.

He is charged with possession of marijuana, less than 1 oz., possession of MDMA with intent to distribute, felony possession of cocaine, and sale of controlled substance (amphetamine.)

"Any arrest is a plus for us, because that's one less individual that is out there in the community distributing drugs on the streets in our neighborhoods," said Police Chief Brian Carney.

He is being held in the Sumter County jail.

Several recent drug busts have been worked by K-9 teams.
