THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Thomas County drug agents say Brian Long was caught growing marijuana plants and having two bags of powder cocaine in his home. He was convicted and was supposed to surrender last May to serve his sentence, but he never showed.

Officers caught Long Thursday after he was involved in a car accident.

"We don't always take them into custody right then and there sometimes what we do under certain circumstances that I won't get into to turn themselves in at a later time at which time was agreed upon and he did not follow through," said Kevin Lee, Narcotics and Drug Commander.

Long was convicted of crimes including possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana, and violating his probation.
