Two Hogansville men were arrested Friday when a Coweta deputy discovered narcotics in their possession during a traffic stop.
The two men, Cory Matthew O’Neal, 26, and Kyle Patrick Fuller, 19, were pulled over by Coweta County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Jeff Bugg on Old Corinth Road for failing to maintain their lane, said Lt. Col. Jimmy Yarbrough with the sheriff’s office. When Bugg approached the driver, O’Neal, he detected a strong odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle, Yarbrough said.
According to Yarbrough, Bugg found marijuana on both O’Neal and Fuller. O’Neal said he was holding the baggie containing more than one ounce of marijuana for a friend, according to Yarbrough. Fuller, who gave a false name to Bugg at first, had about five grams of cocaine and one gram of marijuana in his pockets, Yarbrough said.
O’Neal was charged for possession of marijuana and failure to maintain lane, and Fuller was charged for giving a false name to an officer, possession of cocaine and possession of marijuana. They were both transported to the Coweta County Jail.
