On April 27, Henry County Sheriff’s deputies arrested two Georgia residents on felony drug charges, after pulling a vehicle over for a routine traffic stop on U.S. Highway 431.
Richard Minter, 42, and Lacole Boles, 35, who are from McDonough, Ga., were both arrested and charged with felony drug trafficking after deputies discovered about 16 pounds of marijuana in their vehicle. According to Henry County Public Information Officer Chad Sowell, the marijuana was in two “large bales,” one in the back seat and the other in a leather book bag. Sowell said deputies chased the passenger, Minter, on foot from the scene and apprehended him. Supposedly, the duo was on their way to Panama City when the arrest took place.
