A father of two was arrested Monday night after investigators with the Newnan Police Department searched his home and found traces of marijuana and cocaine, according to authorities.
According to a police report from Investigator Jeremy Wood, around 7 p.m., investigators in the police department’s drug unit served a warrant at Carlos Santez Reid’s home on Richard Allen Drive. Police ended up forcing their way into the home where they found Reid, his family and a recently flushed, still running toilet, Wood said.
Investigators searched the residence and found drug related objects and small amounts of marijuana and cocaine, Wood said. According to the report, some of the objects were found in the children’s bedroom.
