After the arrest of Augusta drug dealer David Brown, Hephzibah police issued a public warning to local parents about drugs that resemble candy.
“This drug (MDMA) often looks like candy, very similar to the candies you get a Valentine’s Day with the messages on them. Some of the ones pictured below from this case even have a Burger King logo,” Hephzibah Police Chief Dwayne Flowers said in a press release.
The bust happened Wednesday as Hephzibah officers were working drug interdiction on US Highway 25 inside the city limits. Officers stopped and arrested the 37-year-old suspect. He had 45 Ecstasy pills and $495 cash. Officers seized it all and the car he was driving.
The Hephzibah Police Department has made 16 felony arrest this year resulting from a traffic enforcement stop.
Brown was charged with multiple felonies, including possession of Ecstasy & marijuana with intent to distribute as well as possession of cocaine and Alprazolam. He was also charged with operating a vehicle without brake lights.
