Albert Wayne Adair, 67, was charged for the possession of narcotics with intent to distribute after he was recorded selling oxycodone and after various prescription medications were discovered in his vehicle. 


A man was arrested Thursday for selling drugs out of his vehicle in a CVS pharmacy parking lot. The Coweta County Sheriff’s Office received a tip about a suspect who was at the CVS pharmacy at 2305 Hwy. 34, said sheriff’s Lt. Col. Jimmy Yarbrough. The case was turned over to investigators Victor McPhie and John Curtis with the Crime Suppression Unit, and around 2:45 p.m., a confidential informant was able to record a purchase of oxycodone from the suspect, Albert Wayne Adair, 67, who was arrested shortly after. Investigators discovered five different bottles of prescription medications in Adair’s possession, including oxycodone, hydrocodone and methadone, all from different pharmacies and doctors, Yarbrough said.

Adair was charged for the possession of narcotics with intent to distribute and for the sale of oxycodone.

“He had his own little drug store in the parking lot,” Yarbrough said. In a separate case, three people were arrested for the possession of marijuana late Thursday. Around 7:30 p.m., Deputy Jeff Bugg pulled over a vehicle for following too closely to another vehicle around mile marker 36 on I-85 southbound, Yarbrough said.

When Bugg approached the vehicle, he could detect a strong smell of marijuana coming from inside. Bugg received permission to search the vehicle and more than a half-pound of marijuana was discovered in a pocket book in the back seat. More than $1,200 in cash was also discovered, Yarbrough said.

The three in the vehicle, Kendarious Marqeke Jones, 20, Shanetris Deatra Jones, 23, and David Earl Kelly, 26, were charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and transported to the Coweta County Jail. Kendarious Jones, who was driving, was additionally charged for following too closely, according to jail records.
