Headland Drug Bust

Headland Police say its one of their biggest drug busts in years, and they're giving credit to Hurricane Ivan.

Police say its the re-routing of I-10 traffic through local roads that lead to the arrest of a man with five one gallon bags of marijuana.

49-year-old Tony Long from Marianna, Florida was arrested for trafficking marijuana.

Officers say they spotted him along Highway 431 acting suspicious. After a search, they found the drugs in a duffle bag in the back of the car.

Police say Ivan closes a highway, and local communities get drug runners in their neighborhoods.

Long is in the Henry County Jail on a $25,000 bond.
