A Newnan man suspected of distributing marijuana was arrested by investigators and officers with the Newnan Police Department late Thursday.

After receiving complaints from residents, investigators with the police department’s drug unit began investigating the area of Domineck Street, said Sgt. Mark Cooper with the drug unit. Investigators then obtained a search warrant, and around 9:15 p.m. Thursday, searched the home of Travis Louis Jimpson, 27, at 26 Domineck St.

Inside, authorities found Jimpson and six plastic bags containing around four ounces of marijuana, Cooper said, along with digital scales and separate, empty plastic bags.
