According to the Gordon County Sheriff’s Office:
A uniformed deputy assigned to the Sheriff’s Office Community Crime Prevention Unit (CCPU) stopped a suspicious Alabama vehicle for a traffic violation near the intersection of I-75 and Hwy. 53.
The car did not immediately stop and turned into a nearby service station to get fuel without ever coming to a stop. An off-duty detective in his private vehicle at the service station saw what was happening and blocked the car in according to the report.
The CCPU deputies, assisted by a drug-dog, searched the car and discovered a half dozen kilos of cocaine.
Terrias Donta Cain, 26, and Michael D. Mosley, 24, both of Athens, Ala. Were arrested and charged with trafficking in cocaine.
Both men are in the Gordon County Jail pending a court appearance.
According to the report, the cocaine is valued at $180,000.
