A traffic stop in Crossville, Ala. led to a drug bust on Sunday when the driver allegedly threw bags of methamphetamine out of the car before pulling over.
A DeKalb County K-9 Deputy first tried to pull over Jeffery Lynn Corbin, 48, on County Road 3, but he failed to pull over for approximately half a mile, according to a news release.
In the meantime, authorities watched him throw several items out of the window before he pulled into a driveway. When the roadway was searched, officers found two plastic bags containing a total of 33 grams of methamphetamine.
A search of the car yielded a set of weights and a large amount of cash. The DeKalb County Drug and Major Crimes unit was contacted and Corbin was arrested and charged with trafficking in any illegal drug, criminal littering and drug paraphernalia.
"I want to thank the Deputies and Geraldine Officer for their attentiveness to detail and follow up on what was first a traffic violation that turned into a large drug seizure," wrote Chief Deputy Michael Edmondson.
