Macon man busted with meth, heroin during traffic stop

A Macon man is in jail on drug trafficking charges after a deputy found he had meth and other substances in his car during a traffic stop.

A Bibb County incident report says a deputy was patrolling the area of Mercer University Drive around 2:30 a.m. Friday when they saw a car speeding and the driver failed to use his turn signals.

After stopping the car, the deputy noted the driver-- 34-year-old Christopher Leon Coleman -- seemed nervous.

The report says when the deputy went to run Coleman’s license, he began to make phone calls from several phones sitting in his lap.

The deputy found Coleman’s license was suspended and he had an outstanding warrant for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

A purple bag inside the car contained a ‘large bag’ of meth and money.

The deputy also found six bags of heroin inside the center console, as well as bags of marijuana stuffed under the back seat.

Coleman’s phones were also collected as evidence along with room keys from multiple hotels.

Coleman was charged with cruelty to children, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, reckless conduct, two counts of trafficking illegal drugs, and possession of marijuana.
