THOMAS CO., GA (WALB) - A man is behind bars in Thomas County after narcotics agents found meth and two loaded firearms in his car.

Deputies arrested David Kennedy, 36, Wednesday after they said he was delivering meth to a business in Coolidge.

When Kennedy saw the deputies' cars, he tried to drive away, but they trapped his car in a ditch.

They found a loaded handgun and a loaded assault rifle in his passenger's seat.

"We want to be able to get to the person without them really having time to react. The quicker we can approach and get it finished, the better for us, the better for them, and the better for the community," said Thomas County Narcotics and Vice Division Commander Kevin Lee.

Kennedy is now charged with possession of meth with intent to distribute, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, and obstruction.
