VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Two Valdosta Police Officers were briefly hospitalized after they came into contact with a baggie of drugs.

On August 5, a woman reported her boyfriend stole her car. A report was made, and the vehicle was put into a system as stolen.

The GPS showed it was in Florida, and the next day, the officers stopped the vehicle on Interstate 75.

The vehicle was searched, and a baggie with white powder was found and turned over to a deputy.

That substance was Ecstasy. 

After being exposed to the baggie, both officers started feeling sick.

They were taken to South Georgia Medical Center to be treated.

Both of the officers later tested negative for drug exposure signs, and are now back at work.
