APD arrests 3 after finding 45 grams of meth, other drugs

The Adairsville Police Department arrested three people Thursday morning after finding 45 grams of methamphetamine, Clonazepam (a Schedule IV controlled substance) and marijuana in a car during a traffic stop.

According to an APD press release, officers saw a “suspicious vehicle” in the area of QT on Highway 140 at around 3:40 a.m. Thursday. A license check on the tag revealed the car, a 2012 Nissan Altima, did not have valid insurance coverage.

After conducting a traffic stop on the Interstate 75 entrance ramp, officers discovered the driver of the car, Troy Cullen Bryant, 25, of Calhoun, was unlicensed.

A warrant check on the two passengers, Brittany Nicole Morrison, 29, of Resaca, and Lacresha Renee Scott, 36, of Calhoun, revealed that Morrison had an outstanding warrant for probation violation out of Murray County.

A subsequent search of the vehicle revealed the drugs in the car.

All three occupants of the car were arrested and transported to the Bartow County Jail.

Bryant was charged with driving while unlicensed and not having insurance. Morrison was charged with possession of a Schedule IV controlled substance and having pills not in their original container. Scott was charged with trafficking methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, possession of less than one ounce of marijuana, possession of drug-related objects and possession of a counterfeit substance.
