CONYERS -- A husband and wife pulled over in a traffic stop early Sunday morning both wound up in jail on drug charges.
A Rockdale County Sheriff's deputy pulled over a car driven by Cory Biff Fortin, 25, at about 1 a.m. Sunday after the car made a right turn from Ga. Highway 138 N. onto Carr Road. The car swung wide and traveled over the double yellow lines. Cory Fortin's wife, Felicia Leigh Fortin, 27, and their daughter, approximately age 5, were passengers in the car.
According to the incident report, Cory Fortin did not have a valid drivers license. As the deputy spoke with Cory Fortin he observed a Glock pistol in a holster next to his right leg on the car seat.
The deputy reported that he took custody of the weapon and detained Cory Fortin, who seemed "very agitated and nervous, even above what is expected when a subject knows that they are going to jail."
A K9 officer called to the scene was walked around the Fortins' car and alerted on the front passenger side of the vehicle where Felicia Fortin had been sitting.
A search of Felicia Fortin's purse revealed a small plastic bag of suspected methamphetamine. In addition, a scale was found under the front passenger seat and an orange plastic bag containing a small amount of suspected methamphetamine was found in the center console, along with two additional magazines for the Glock.
Felicia's parents were called to come take custody of the child.
The Fortins were taken to jail, where Felicia Fortin reportedly informed jail personnel that she had more methamphetamine on her person. She was taken to a cell where she reportedly removed methamphetamine wrapped in cellophane from her vagina.
Cory Fortin, of 2452 Lakeshore Drive, was charged with failure to maintain lane, operating a motor vehicle with a suspended or revoked license, possession of a Schedule III controlled substance, and possession of a firearm during commission or attempt to commit certain felonies. He remained in jail as of press time Tuesday.
Felicia Fortin, of the same Lakeshore Drive address, was charged with possession and use of drug-related objects and possession and use of a Schedule III controlled substance. She was released from jail on bond after three days in confinement.
