One man is behind bars in Decatur County after investigators say he willingly handed over drugs to investigators.

Deputies arrested George Hawthorne after receiving a tip of drugs at 237 Beaver Circle.

When investigators asked Hawthorne if he had any drugs on him, he pulled what officers believe to be crystal meth out of his pocket. 

“It was a very big shock to me,” said Investigator Jason Williams. “Usually it's a cat and mouse game with drug dealers.  And for them to just take it out and hand it to you, you have to ask yourself, 'Is this real?’”

Hawthorne is charged with possession of meth with intent to distribute.
