Sixty individual baggies of marijuana, along with three baggies of powdered cocaine and crack cocaine, were discovered in Joshua Gabriel's possession.

A man was arrested by Coweta County authorities Thursday afternoon after 60 small baggies of marijuana were discovered in his possession.

According to Lt. Col. James Yarbrough with the sheriff’s office, Deputy Matt Williams pulled over Gabriel Joshua, 33, on the corner of Haynie Street and Kidd Street in Newnan around 1:30 p.m. for a traffic violation. Williams identified Joshua as having an outstanding warrant in Coweta County for violation of probation.

Deputy Williams called a K-9 unit to the scene, Yarbrough said, and after searching Joshua’s vehicle, 60 individual $10 baggies of marijuana, three small bags of cocaine, three small amounts of crack cocaine and a digital scale were discovered in his possession. Joshua received felony charges for possession of cocaine and marijuana with intent to distribute.

According to Yarbrough, Joshua was recently put on probation after he was arrested for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, so he has been in this position before.
