MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – A Macon man was arrested on drug charges after a traffic stop he tried to pay his way out of.
29 year-old Nathaniel Gordy was driving along Vineville Avenue around 3:00 A.M when an officer pulled him over for running a red light at the intersection of Forest Hill Road.
He handed the officer his bank card instead of his license. The officer smelled marijuana and searched the car initially only finding a small amount.
But as the search continued, Lt. Randy Gonzalez says they found much more than just a little bit.
“(We) also found a weapon that was inside the vehicle, and then also on the truck area found something that was described as duffel bags and duffel bags…with several bags of marijuana in there.”
Gordy was arrested and charged with two counts of trafficking cocaine and marijuana, use of a fire arm by a convicted felon during a crime, possession of a fire arm by a convicted felon, violating his probation and running that red light.
He’s currently being held at the Bibb County Jail without bond. Gonzalez says this is Gordy’s 12th arrest in Bibb County.
