CONYERS - A teenager suspected of driving under the influence was arrested after deputies found several packages of drugs in his car and inside his clothing.Sometime around 2 a.m. Thursday, Rockdale County Sheriff's Office Deputy Steven Hitchcock noticed a black Chevrolet Impala weaving into the oncoming lane of traffic while traveling toward DeKalb County on Old Covington Highway.The deputy pulled over the driver, Renardo Wynn, who told the officer he had not had any alcohol to drink nor was he under the influence of any drug, according to the incident report. Wynn then offered to let the officer search him and the vehicle, Hitchcock said. The deputy looked inside the car and saw an open can of Bud Light in the cup holder behind the front seats. He searched further and found what he believed to be a small amount of marijuana in an open pack of Stride gum placed in the center console between the two front seats. Wynn was arrested and taken to the Rockdale County Jail, where he was searched during the book-in process. "Located in the crotch area of his pants was a clear (bag) containing a white rock substance consistent with crack cocaine," Hitchcock reported. Deputies also found a plastic bag with marijuana and five, smaller, individually wrapped bags with faces of green Martians containing suspected marijuana.The total weight of the white rock substance was 30 grams, the incident report states. Wynn, 17, of 340 Sprucewood Court in Lawrenceville was charged with violation of the Georgia Controlled Substances Act, improper lane or lane change, driving without taillights, possession of marijuana less than 1 ounce and going inside guardline with weapons, liquor or drugs.
