Man arrested for felony possession of marijuana

by Wes Mayer

A man suspected of distributing marijuana was arrested by Coweta County deputies Tuesday afternoon.

Around 1:30 p.m., Sgt. Jeff Bugg with the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office pulled over a vehicle for traveling 15 miles over the speed limit near the intersection of Turkey Creek Road and Highway 16, said Lt. Col. Jimmy Yarbrough with the sheriff’s office. According to Yarbrough, when Bugg approached the driver, identified as Julian Alexis Delgado, 20, he detected a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle.

Sgt. Justin Thompson also arrived on scene, Yarbrough said, and after searching the vehicle, a plastic baggie containing approximately one ounce of marijuana was found in the front seat. Deputies then found a glass jar in the back seat containing around two and a half ounces of marijuana, small plastic baggies, a glass pipe and digital scales. $300 in cash were also found in Delgado’s possession.

Delgado was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and speeding, and was transported to the Coweta County Jail.
