Two people were arrested Thursday night by Ware County deputies after receiving information about a text message from one person (a would-be seller of drugs) to another (a would-be buyer), said Ware County Sheriff Randy Royal.
The person on the receiving end of the texting called the law, Royal said.
Christopher Ashley Crawford, 21, of Jamestown Road, and David Brandon Adams, 34, of Jamestown Road, were arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine, reckless conduct, use of communication device to facilitate drug activity and possession of drug related objects, said Royal.
The case was brought to the attention of drug detectives by the recipient of the text message, he said. Working with detectives the whistle-blower and the suspect agreed to meet at a location in the 2000 block of Albany Avenue at 7:58 p.m. Thursday, he said.
Royal said when the vehicle, a 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser, arrived at the pre-determined location, the driver and passenger were instructed by deputies to get out of the vehicle. At that point, Royal said, they heard the cries of a baby. In the rear seat, a 4-month-old baby boy was found and the Department of Family and Children Services was called. The baby was taken to a family member, the sheriff said.
A search of the vehicle turned up a number of syringes, one filled with liquid methamphetamine, Royal said. Both men were taken to the Ware County jail where they remained this morning, the sheriff said.
