DECATUR CO., GA (WALB) -

A man is free on bond after Decatur County Sheriff's deputies said they found meth in the man's book bag.

Deputies arrested 30-year-old Earnest Jackson this week when they responded to a call about someone riding a motorcycle in a ditch on Lake Douglas Road.

They saw Jackson in a car parked by the ditch and found a book bag containing meth and receipts in the back of the car.

“I checked the receipts,” said Investigator Adam Mobley. “I went to Havana yesterday, the Dollar General in Havana.  I checked the surveillance video and it actually shows him coming inside and buying the articles that were found in the book bag.  And he was actually wearing the book bag at the time.  The one that he said wasn't his.”

Jackson is charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute.
