Two men were arrested for alleged cocaine and marijuana possession Sunday at 3:47 a.m. According to the police report, officers stopped 26-year-old Alex Connally, of Senoia, and passenger 25-year-old Tecorius Sasser, of Newnan, at a traffic safety check point.
An officer noticed the smell of marijuana from the vehicle, according to the police report. When talking to Sasser, the officer observed him tuck something in his front pocket before being searched.
According to the police report, the officer asked Sasser for his ID, but he said he forgot it and gave him the name DeUnjay Sasser and gave him his height at 5-foot 8-inches. According to the police report, Sasser and the officer went back and forth since he did match the description he gave for his height and weight.
According to the police report, Sasser then gave his real name and said he gave a false one because he was confident he had a felony probation violation warrant through Coweta County for burglary. Sasser did have a warrant and was taken into custody.
When searching Sasser, an officer found a bag containing suspected cocaine in his front pocket.
According to the police report, another officer found a partially smoked marijuana blunt and a thermos containing two bags of more suspected marijuana in the vehicle. Sasser admitted to the blunt being his and neither admitted to the other marijuana.
