Cobb cops: Speeding car had all sorts of drugs and a machete inside

Two men were arrested early Tuesday after Cobb County police say officers found enough drugs and money and weapons in a speeding car to accuse the men as drug dealers.

Darien Knight, 24, was driving a 2010 Audi A4 at 91 mph on a 55 mph stretch of Dallas Highway just after midnight. Riding along with the Powder Springs man was 25-year-old Ian Copeland of Dallas.

Sgt. Wayne Delk, spokesman for Cobb police, said an officer saw “some illegal narcotics” in Knight’s lap during the traffic stop.
