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 06/15/22, I was stopped at the light in the area of New Jesup Hwy and Cary St attempting to make a U-turn to head west on New Jesup Hwy.

I observed a blue Chevrolet Cobalt traveling west on New Jesup Hwy with all the windows blacked out with tint including the front windshield and the occupants or the human figure of an occupant wasn’t visible due to the light not being able to transmit through any window on the vehicle.

Due to my knowledge and experience of tint was at least 5 percent on each window which is far below the legal limit of 32 percent. I initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle by activating my lights and sirens, stopping the vehicle in the parking lot of 2002 S Commercial Dr; Texaco.

Upon stopping the vehicle, I contacted the driver a Mr. Curtis Combee and explained the reason for the stop. While explaining the reason for the stop, I observed Mr. Combee appeared to be very nervous and under influence of drugs. The behaviors Mr. Combee described: rapid breathing, he was slightly shaking and twitching of the mouth.

Base off those behaviors, I asked him was it any weapons or drugs in the vehicle? He stated yes a pocket knife which he tried to pick up and show me. I asked him was it any drugs in the vehicle drug and he just shook his head in a left and right motion while stating no, as I noticed his breathing became heavier.

It is noted when I asked Mr. Combee about drugs being in the vehicle, his body language change even more with the shakes and he was less engaged with me by looking away as he answered my questions. Due to my knowledge and experience as a narcotics investigator, I had reasonable suspicion to believe it was possibly drugs in the vehicle.

I asked Mr. Combee for consent to search his vehicle and he stated no wanting to know why I wanted to search. I explain my reason to Mr. Combee and I had him step out the vehicle and he gave me consent to search his person, nothing was found. He stood by the front of my vehicle with Ofc. Mike.

K-9 Bety gave a positive alert on the vehicle. See K9 supplement for deployment narrative! I conducted a search of the vehicle and during the search of the vehicle, I found a small clear shard that field tested for methamphetamine and a smoking pipe under the driver seat. Mr. Combee was advised what was found and he was placed under arrest. He was placed in the back seat of my patrol vehicle.

I asked the store owner was it ok if Mr. Combee vehicle was left in a parking spot at his business and he stated yes. Mr. Combee vehicle was left locked and secure parked in a space on the right side of the business. Mr Combee was transported to the Glynn County Detention Center, where he was released to the jail staff upon completion of the booking paperwork.

I logged all the evidence into the evidence locker at GCPD. I packaged the methamphetamine and the pipe, and I completed the GBI crime submission form. I placed the GBI submission forms along with the methamphetamine ([REDACTED BY AGENCY]) into an evidence locker at the Glynn County Police Department.

The pipe ([REDACTED BY AGENCY]) and pouch ([REDACTED BY AGENCY]) were also placed into an evidence locker at the Glynn County Police Department. All the other evidence was logged in as well and was placed in the evidence locker.
