CRISP CO., GA (WALB) - A traffic stop on GA 40/I-75 in Crisp County Sunday morning led to the discovery of two kilos of methamphetamine and an arrest, according to the Crisp County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO).
Xavier Jordan, 30, is facing multiple charges after deputies pulled him over around 10:20 a.m. near mile marker 104 for impeding the free flow of traffic, CCSO said.
Deputies said Jordan was acting suspicious and they asked to search his vehicle. Jordan agreed to the search and the deputies said they found two kilos of crystal meth inside a soft-sided cooler and a firearm.
“Not only Crisp County, but our surrounding counties are very vigilant in working the narcotic ring that goes up and down our interstate and for that we work any felony, we use that traffic stop to get those felonious people off the highways and make our communities a safe place for people to live and grow and play,” said Sheriff Billy Hancock.
CCSO said Jordan was arrested and charged with trafficking, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
Jordan was taken to the Crisp County Detention Center, according to CCSO.
