Two men and a woman had their Fourth of July evening cut short after an assortment of drugs were discovered in their car.

According to Lt. Col. James Yarbrough with the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office, around 10:30 p.m., a Volkswagen Jetta traveling south on U.S. Highway 29 was pulled over by Deputy Donald Patterson for weaving between lanes. 

Patterson approached the car, and the driver and passengers were identified as Willandria Shanique Jackson, 24; Charles Howard Turner, 39; and Christopher Raymone Reeves, 34.

Reeves initially gave a false name to Patterson, Yarbrough said. It was soon discovered this was because Reeves had a warrant out for his arrest for theft by receiving stolen property.

Patterson called Deputy Brandon Thrower’s K-9 unit to the scene under suspicion that drugs may be in the vehicle.

When deputies and the drug dog searched the car, an amount of methamphetamine was found under the floorboard, cocaine was discovered in the back seat and a mason jar filled with individual baggies of marijuana was discovered under the front seat.

The three occupants of the vehicle were charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of cocaine and possession of methamphetamine.

Reeves was also charged with giving false information and faces his previous theft charges as well.
