A Winterville man was arrested by Comer Police recently following a BOLO (be on the look out) on a stolen green Ford Bronco out of Elbert County.
Carlton Lindsey Erwin, 51, 39 Milton Road, was charged with driving while license suspended or revoked, theft by receiving stolen property, possession and use of drug-related objects, prescription drugs not in their original container, possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, possession of cocaine, trafficking in cocaine, illegal drugs, marijuana or methamphetamine, receipt, possession or transfer of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of a firearm or knife during the commission of or attempt to commit certain felonies and four counts of possession of a controlled substance (II, III and IV).
Comer police officer Cliff Moody reportedly spotted the vehicle while on patrol as it headed east on Hwy. 72 in Comer.
He stopped the vehicle and told the driver (Erwin) the reason for the stop. Moody allegedly found a small bag of suspected methamphetamine on Erwin’s person and a subsequent search of the vehicle yielded close to a pound of marijuana, 31.6 ounces of additional methamphetamine, several prescription narcotics packaged for resale, a loaded 38 caliber derringer and a large amount of cash. Also in the vehicle were several pairs of ladies panties and a number of “sex toys.”
