Various packages of prescription pills that were seized Monday evening on Cordele Road when ADDU drug agents stopped a car for illegal window tint.

ADDU Commander Major Prurince Dice said "They smelled an odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle, which led to probable cause to search the vehicle."

In the back seat in a purple backpack, agents found pills.  31 year old Terry Martin and 22 year old Sadie King were charged with more than 20 counts of possession of controlled substances with the intent to distribute.

"Numerous amounts and counts of prescriptions. Different variations of them. Different schedules.  Led me to believe this was in fact a mobile pharmacy," Dice said.

Agents say there are at least ten different types of pain killers or opioid medicines in the pills, with a street value of about $3,000. Plus two pill crushers that can be used to grind the pills up for injecting or smoking, or mixing.

Dice called it "Terribly dangerous. We've seen a lot of crazy things.  A lot of crazy things.  I don't put anything past a drug dealer that's out they're trying to make money."

Drug agents say they are seeing less prescription pill sales on Albany streets, possibly because of tightening laws on opioids.  But they say there are still some dealers on Albany streets, selling from what they call mobile pharmacies.

Martin and King are being held in the Dougherty County jail.  ADDU drug agents are now working with agents in Mitchell County to further investigate the pills.
