Two people were arrested on drugs and counterfeiting charges Saturday about 5 p.m. during a routine traffic stop for a brake light violation as officers found them in possession of methamphetamine, oxycodone, marijuana, heroin, drug-related objects and counterfeit money, said Ware County Sheriff’s Capt. Neil Skerratt.
Buzzy Lamar Murray, 39, of the 3800 block of Highway 32 in Hortense, was driving a red Toyota Camry with inoperable brake lights when Deputy Zabrae Williams noticed the vehicle at Ed King Lane and Dixie Union Road, said Skerratt.
Murray was charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of meth with intent to distribute, possession of a Schedule I drug, heroin, possession of drug-related objects, forgery and numerous traffic charges, said Skerratt.
His passenger, Caitlyn Lavell-Rene Miller, 24, of the 4100 block of Brooke Lane, Blackshear, was charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of meth with intent to distribute, possession of heroin, possession of drug-related objects, possession of marijuana and forgery, said Skerratt.
“Both of them were taken to the Ware County jail and booked on the charges,” said Skerratt.
Deputy Williams discovered that Murray was out on parole and Miller was out of the Pierce County jail on bond for drug charges, said Skerratt.
Deputy Williams’ drug dog alerted on the vehicle and a search of the Camry turned up quantities of the methamphetamine, oxycodone, heroin, marijuana, fake money and drug-related objects including hypodermic needles, said Skerratt.
Detectives James Cox and Blake Lewis arrived to assist with the incident.
