Flowery Branch man jailed on drug charges

132 Ecstasy tablets found in car, officer says

POSTED: May 24, 2008 5:00 a.m.
A Flowery Branch man, pulled over for driving on a suspended license and without insurance, had more than enough Ecstasy in his car to catch a trafficking charge, sheriff’s officials say.

His wife also went to jail after attempting to keep officers from arresting her husband, authorities said.

Joseph Mittwalli Ahmad, 37, had 132 multicolored MDMA (Ecstasy) tablets in his car when Hall County sheriff’s officers pulled him over for driving on a suspended license Sunday, Lt. Scott Ware said.

The Ecstasy, with an estimated street value of $2,640, weighed 44 grams, and Ware said a person must be in possession of at least 28 grams of the substance to be charged with trafficking. Sheriff’s deputies knew Ahmad was driving on a suspended license when they saw him driving on Golden Parkway near the Cracker Barrel on Sunday afternoon, Ware said.

Following protocol, deputies searched Ahmad’s vehicle and found the Ecstasy.

Ahmad was charged with trafficking MDMA, possession of MDMA with intent to distribute, driving on a suspended license and driving without insurance.

His wife, Debra Alice Ahmad, 40, also was charged with obstruction of justice, a misdemeanor, after she stood between her husband and the deputy arresting him, shouting and cursing at the officer.

Joseph Ahmad was still in the Hall County Jail on Monday afternoon, but Debra Ahmad had made bond, Ware said.
