MOULTRIE, Ga. — A Moultrie man faces multiple drug charges following a traffic stop Sept. 10.

Moultrie-Colquitt County Drug Enforcement Team Investigator Ivon Folsom stated that Moultrie police Officer Dylan Thompson made a traffic stop about 11 p.m. on Veterans Parkway at Park Avenue and smelled marijuana coming from Anthony Giddens’ vehicle.
