Deputies found 227 grams of methamphetamine, 9 grams of heroin, more than 3 pounds of marijuana, 100 packs of marijuana gummies, 250 THC vape vials, 230 grams of psilocybin mushrooms and $25,000 in cash after arresting a Tucker man Sept. 30 in Pendergrass.

A Tucker man is accused of throwing bags of drugs out of his truck’s window, leading authorities to find more than $53,000 of illegal narcotics.

Jackson County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a domestic disturbance call on Sunday, Sept. 30, on Old State Road in Pendergrass.

Deputies reportedly saw Nathan Cole Crumley, 35, “throwing bags of illegal narcotics out the window of his truck and into the yard” of the Old State Road residence, according to Georgia Bureau of Investigation Special Agent in Charge Mitchell Posey.

“I guess if it wasn’t in his truck he could say it wasn’t his,” Posey wrote in an email.

Deputies then found 227 grams of methamphetamine, 9 grams of heroin, more than 3 pounds of marijuana, 100 packs of marijuana gummies, 250 THC vape vials, 230 grams of psilocybin mushrooms and $25,000 in cash.

THC is the psychoactive substance found in marijuana, and psilocybin mushrooms are a hallucinogenic drug.

The estimated street value of the drugs is $53,000.

Crumley was taken to the Jackson County Detention Center and charged with trafficking methamphetamine and heroin as well as possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.

The Appalachian Regional Drug Enforcement Office is assisting the ongoing investigation.

Citing the ongoing investigation, Jackson County Sheriff Janis Mangum did not release any further information on the original domestic disturbance call.
