Two arrested for methamphetamine in drug sting
by Wes Mayer
Two men were arrested Wednesday after investigators with the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office received information they would be delivering methamphetamine into the county.
With the help of a confidential informant, investigators with the sheriff’s office’s Crime Suppression Unit learned a man named Shanandor Otis Black, 41, would be delivering meth to the Hardee’s restaurant on 4201 Highway 154 on Wednesday around 12:30 p.m., said Lt. Col. Jimmy Yarbrough with the sheriff’s office. When Black arrived, investigators were waiting for him, and they saw another man, Ramon Alejandro Nunez, 20, was driving the vehicle.
Investigators approached the vehicle and received consent to search the suspects and their vehicle, Yarbrough said. On Black, investigators found a small baggie containing meth, and more suspected meth was discovered inside a french-fry box in the vehicle. The total amount was more than a quarter ounce, Yarbrough said.
Both men were charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, Yarbrough said, and Black was additionally charged with use of a communications facility to violate provisions prohibited — using a cell phone to set up the drug deal. Investigators found Nunez was driving on a suspended license, and he was additionally charged with that.
