Running a stop sign leads to Coffee Co. pot bust

NICHOLLS, GA (WALB) -

About 7:00 Sunday night, a Nicholls Police officer stopped a red Pathfinder, after the driver ran a stop sign on Van Street Highway.

The driver of the vehicle threw a cigarette pack out the window as he was being pulled over. The officer picked up the pack and found three marijuana joints, and a small amount of what looked like methamphetamine.

DCDU detectives came out and verified that the white substance was Meth. The unofficial weight was 0.8 grams.

The driver of the vehicle, Michael Eugene Gill, 50, from Nicholls, was taken into custody. 

Gill was arrested and will be charged for failure to stop at a stop sign, possession of methamphetamine and possession of marijuana, less than an ounce.

"I would like to thank the officers of the Nicholls Police Department and the Coffee County Sheriff’s Office for their continued efforts to rid our streets of these illegal drugs," said Coffee County Sheriff Doyle Wooten.
