A man and woman who reportedly spent several days shooting methamphetamine at a Moultrie motel were arrested after the woman called 911 to report a suspected overdose.

Tiffany Marie Griffin of Hartsfield called 911 at about 12:21 a.m. Saturday to report that her boyfriend, Marcus Woodrow Rogers, was unresponsive and appeared to be coming in and out of consciousness. She reported that Rogers recently had learned to make the drug and they had been using it in a room at Town Terrace Motel, 600 S. Main St., for four or five days without sleeping.

When officers arrived, Moultrie Police Department reports said, Griffin told them that she had flushed the remaining meth down the toilet before they got there.

Inside the room, police said, officers found a glass jar with a spoon in it as well as a tourniquet used in the injection of methamphetamine. Officers found pieces of suspected meth on the floor of the room and suspected marijuana and wadded up cash in a garbage can outside the room.

Emergency Medical Service personnel checked Rogers and determined that he was under the influence of drugs but would be all right, police said.

Griffin, 24, 5322 Ga. Hwy. 111, and Rogers, 25, of Moultrie were each charged with possession of methamphetamine, said Moultrie-Colquitt County Drug Enforcement Team Cmdr. Steve Exum.
