MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Three men are in jail after being caught in a vehicle containing drugs last week.

A release from the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office says deputies were patrolling near Goodall Mill Road and Sardis Church Road on Friday, October 4 when they were flagged down about a suspicious Mitsubishi Lancer in the Goodall Woods Subdivision.

Deputies say when they found the Lancer, they saw a man dumping trash in the woods before returning to the car and acting as if he was hiding something in the car.
