VALDOSTA – Deputies arrest a Florida man on Friday after he allegedly threw $2,500 worth of crystal meth out of a car window on Interstate 75.

At approximately 6:30 p.m. Friday, deputies with the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office performed a traffic stop on a Ford Taurus travelling south on I-75. The deputies stopped the vehicle for excessively dark window tinting, said LCSO Capt. Stryde Jones.

“The deputy performed a traffic a traffic stop near the 13 mile maker, and as the vehicle began to slow, someone tossed a package out the window,” Jones said. “The deputy continued with the traffic stop, and an assisting deputy recovered the package, which contained approximately 25 grams of crystal methamphetamine.”

Investigators with the LCSO Interstate Criminal Enforcement Unit determined that the passenger in the car, Justin Alan Cameron, 29, of Lake Butler, had possessed and thrown the package out of the window. Cameron was placed under arrest and taken to the Lowndes County Jail, Jones said.

The recovered drugs have an estimated street value of $2,500, Jones said.

“These deputies do a great job working to hinder the flow of drugs through our county. Although this dope was most likely headed elsewhere, it makes a dent and helps everyone,” said LCSO Sheriff Chris Prine.
