A Conyers man was arrested on suspicion of selling drugs after several varieties of narcotics were found at the scene of an accident he caused on Old Salem Road last Wednesday afternoon.
Reginald King, 35, was jailed on five drug charges after authorities allegedly found small bags of drugs in his vehicle and in the roadway after King rear-ended a vehicle attempting to turn into the soccer complex near the intersection of Flat Shoals and Old Salem Roads. A tow truck driver told authorities he saw small baggies containing suspected narcotics in the roadway as he was attempting to remove the vehicles.
According to the incident report, King was the only person injured in the accident and was treated for a cut to his hand on the scene. Upon searching King's 2004 Nissan authorities allegedly located the drugs in a plastic bag with fresh blood on it after King had reportedly said he was searching for his car charger following the wreck.
King was charged with three counts of possession of cocaine and two counts of possession of methamphetamine. He was also charged with possession of a schedule one substance for possession of possible ecstasy, possession of marijuana less than one ounce and abandonment of a controlled substance for discarding the narcotics in the roadway in front of residences on Old Salem Road and Rockdale Youth Soccer Association.
