On Monday, March 4, 2024, Captain Sean Humphrey of the Reynolds Police Department sprung into action after receiving an alert from the Flock Safety Camera system indicating a vehicle with an expired tag was headed westbound. Captain Humphrey swiftly located the vehicle and confirmed the expired tag through the Georgia Crime Information Center (GCIC), revealing that the owner’s license was suspended.

Chief Holder then authorized the activation of emergency lights, prompting a traffic stop. Upon approaching the driver, identified as 30-year-old Adam Herman from Augusta, Captain Humphrey detected the distinct odor of marijuana emanating from inside the vehicle. When questioned, Herman admitted to possessing a pipe used for smoking marijuana.

A subsequent search of the vehicle led to the discovery of THC oil vape pens, around 3 ounces of marijuana, a handgun, and several unprescribed pills. Herman was taken into custody and now faces an array of charges, including driving infractions, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of a Schedule I controlled substance, possession of drug-related objects, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

Herman’s charges also include two counts each of possession of dangerous drugs and possession of dangerous drugs not in their original container. The Reynolds Police Department continues to investigate the incident.
