AMERICUS, Ga. (WRBL) – What started as a traffic stop ended in a major drug bust for the Americus Police Department.
On April 19 at 1:45 p.m., an officer pulled over William Cromer, 29, of Americus, driving a 2015 Chevrolet Silverado for an expired registration and discovered Cromer to have a suspended driver’s license and an open container of alcohol. The officer continued to investigate and found drugs and a significant amount of cash.
Chief of Police Mark Scott told News 3 Cromer was found with more than $40,000 in cash. Cromer was also in possession of marijuana, marijuana combined with CBD oil, methamphetamine, and fentanyl in pressed pill form. Police are investigating where Cromer obtained the drugs.
