On Tuesday evening, Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office received information from the Thomas County Narcotics Unit that Cleveland Eugene Watson, 28, of Thomasville, was staying at the Briarwood Motel and had active arrest warrants issued in Thomas County.

Following an investigation by the deputies, Amanda McKinney and Cleveland Watson were arrested and taken to the Lowndes County Jail and booked on possession of Ecstasy charges.
