Police in Georgia, said that a criminal walked straight into their trap when he asked for directions to a drug house.

The Chattahoochee Hills Police Department said that on Monday around 8:00 p.m., officers executed a search warrant at 6915 Campbellton Redwine Road.

During their search, they found 17 bags, which contained about 50 pounds of marijuana. Three suspects were arrested and taken into custody for questioning.

Three days later, on Thursday, a driver of a flatbed utility trailer flagged down a Chattahoochee Hills city public safety vehicle operated by Fire Chief Greg Brett.

He asked Brett for directions to the same house that was raided earlier in the week. Chief Brett, who knew about the drug bust, immediately notified Police Chief Stoney Mathis.

Chief Mathis and other officers quickly responded to the scene and initiated a traffic stop.

The driver consented to a search of the vehicle. Chief Mathis requested assistance from the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office K-9 unit.

The K-9 led police to the axle of the utility trailer.

Police found 154 pounds of cocaine and it was confiscated.

The driver of the vehicle was questioned and released while police conduct their investigation.
