A 33-year-old man hanging around Words of Wisdom Church on 38th Street was searched and ultimately arrested for meth possession Tuesday night, according to a Columbus police report.
An officer was patrolling the area of 38th Street and 4th Avenue at about 5 p.m. when he noticed George Coulter, 33, leaning into a white vehicle at the church.
The officer performed an investigative stop on Coulter; in the process, he advised Coulter to place his left hand on the bed of a nearby Ford Ranger. As the suspect did so, the officer noticed something drop from his hand which landed behind the rear left tire of the truck and revealed itself to be, upon inspection, a clear bag containing .9 grams of suspected methamphetamine.
Coulter was arrested and taken to the Muscogee County Jail.
