When an officer with the Moultrie Police Department pulled over a woman Wednesday for speeding, he ended up finding a lot more.

Shantara McGee was going 58 miles per hour in a 35 mph zone on North Main Street. She sped up, made a quick turn, and allegedly threw something out of the car.

Police found two ounces of crack cocaine inside the bag she threw out of the car and inside the car they also found a small amount.

McGee was charged with trafficking cocaine and speeding.
