Crisp County Sheriffs Deputy Sergeant Kenny Purvis arrested Mario Flounoy, a 38-year-old resident of Pavo, Ga., on Saturday, Sept. 21 at approximately 3 p.m. on a felony charge of trafficking in cocaine.
Purvis initiated a traffic stop on a black Hyundai Sonata traveling southbound on I-75 near milepost 104 for impeding the free flow of traffic. Due to the driver’s suspicious behavior, the deputy requested to search the vehicle.
Flounoy gave consent to search, and K-9 Molly alerted to the presence of suspected cocaine in the vehicle. Purvis discovered a large amount of suspected cocaine in the vehicle and consequently placed Jordan under arrest and transported him to the Crisp County Detention Center, where he is currently being held.
