Marianna Meth Bust

By  | 

Marianna police investigators say they've made a pretty sizable drug bust during a routine traffic stop.

Forty-three-year-old Deldon Roy McGhee of Atmore, Alabama is in the Jackson County Jail, charged with trafficking methamphetamine, possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia.

Authorities say they pulled McGhee over Wednesday morning for a broken tail light on his pick-up truck. They say they searched the truck and found a little less than a gram of marijuana, a meth pipe and 30 grams of finished meth, worth about $3,000.

Sgt. Bill Bryant with the Marianna Police Department says, "It's the most we've ever come across here at the Marianna Police Department, and talking with the task force, they say they usually don't get this much finished product. Usually they get the labs, but not this much finished product."

McGhee's bond has been set at $40,000.
