Tearful man arrested with drugs
While conducting patrol on Staton Place in Acworth on Friday, a BCSO deputy noticed a man walking down the street. As soon as the pedestrian, later identified as James Ray, saw the patrol car, he turned into the next driveway.
The officer immediately pulled over and asked the man his name. Ray began to cry; the officer repeated the question three times before Ray answered. “I have meth around my neck,” Ray said as he continued to cry. The officer retrieved a black lanyard with Hawaii printed on it from around the subject’s neck. It contained a white crystal-like substance.
The officer learned Ray had an outstanding warrant for probation violation and he was placed under arrest.
