Officer’s Narrative:
[Please note: The following is a direct transcription from the officer’s narrative report. We do not fix any spelling or grammatical errors. Any changes made by our staff are placed inside brackets. Some errors may exist.]

On the date of 10/19/2021 at 2120 hrs, while on routine patrol in the area of Hwy 16 and Hwy 85 in Senoia, I observed a red passenger car with extremely dark window tint turn into the Circle K parking lot. I then activated my emergency lights and sirens, conducting a traffic stop on the vehicle in the Circle K parking lot. Immediately after the front seat passenger exited the vehicle, I ordered him to sit back in the vehicle.

I then approached the vehicle and met with the driver, Charles Floyd, and the front seat passenger, [REDACTED]. Immediately I smelled the odor of marijuana coming from the inside of the car. I then requested Floyd’s driver’s license and requested him to exit the vehicle. Ofc. Callaway and Sgt. Kilgore from Senoia PD arrived on the scene to assist me with my drug investigation.

Once I separated Floyd from his vehicle, I conducted a search of his person due to the odor of marijuana coming from his person. I located blunt spray in his front right pocket along with a digital scale containing suspected marijuana and a white crystal substance I believed to be suspected methamphetamine residue based on my training, knowledge, and experience. I then detained Floyd in my department-issued handcuffs, which were checked for fit and double-locked for safety.

I then conducted my probable cause search of the vehicle. Inside the vehicle on the rear floorboard, I located a Costa sunglasses container. Inside this container, I located a glass smoking device with burnt residue inside of the bulb. I then located a small cloth container that contained a plastic baggie. Inside of this baggie, I located an amount of a white crystal substance I believed to be suspected methamphetamine.

I then read Floyd his Miranda Warning which he stated he understood and wished to speak with me, Floyd stated the meth was most likely his brother, who used the car at an earlier time. Floyd said the scale located on his person also was his brother, but he just placed it in his pocket to show his wife.

I released [REDACTED] from my custody without issue. Floyd’s wife, who was a licensed driver, took custody of the vehicle so I didn’t have to tow the car.

I transported Floyd to the Coweta County Jail where he turned over to jail staff without issue. Proper evidence procedures were also completed. The window tint was found to be 00% after using my department-issued tint meter. Audio and video were captured on my BWC.
