A citizen contacted police after she found a bag in the street that contained thousands of dollars in drugs, according to officials.
Reports state the woman found the bag in the street near Cherokee Road and College Drive.
The woman told police she picked up and opened the bag to see if there was any identification inside so she could return it to its owner, but she called police when she saw what was inside.
Police said they found a small bag of marijuana and a large amount of methamphetamine inside the bag after it was turned over to them. The evidence was taken to the Cedartown Police Department (CPD) and tested and proved to be methamphetamines.
According to the report, the methamphetamine had a total street value of approximately $12,600. No arrests have been made.
