A Sandy Springs man was arrested Saturday after police found cocaine, ecstasy, a scale and small clear bags inside a duffel bag in a car he was in.
Kenneth J. Rogers was charged with possession of and intent to distribute cocaine, and intent of and intent to distribute MDMA — which is short for methylenedioxymethamphetamine — commonly referred to as “molly” or ecstasy. Police found 18 grams of cocaine and 71 pills, or 22 grams, of MDMA in the car.
Around 4:45 a.m. on Aug. 5, a Sandy Springs police officer saw a gold Toyota Camry traveling west on Hammond Drive, according to a police report. The officer saw the car “braking irregularly” and “turning into parking lots that were closed.”
The officer ran the tags of the car and found that the plate number was not assigned to the Camry. The officer pulled over the driver, Eboni Hayes.
According to the police report, the officer said he saw Hayes, Rogers and another passenger, Khaya Gilika “shaking and not making logical sense” when he asked them why they were in Sandy Springs. Hayes gave officers permission to search the vehicle.
After police found the duffel bag and the drugs inside of it, Rogers admitted it was his, according to the report. He told police that none of his friends were involved and that he “made a big mistake.”
Rogers told police that the cocaine they found was fake, and the real cocaine was inside of his sock. He turned that over to police.
According to the police report, officers tested all the substances and they turned up positive for cocaine and MDMA.
Rogers was taken to the Alpharetta jail where he is still being held. His court date is pending.
Hayes and Gilika were released at the scene and not charged.
