A taskforce run by the Cobb County Sheriff's Office arrested Curtis Clyde Cook on Thursday and charged him with possession of marijuana and possession of a firearm.

The Marietta Daily Journal reports that the 55-year-old officer was riding in a car that was stopped by taskforce agents because it had expired tags.

During the stop, investigators said they could smell marijuana and found a bag of the drug on Cook.

Smyrna police officer Michael Smith, a department spokesman, said Police Chief Stan Hook fired Cook on Friday.

A phone listing for Cook could not be located.

It was unclear whether he had an attorney.

    All that wear sheeps clothing aren't sheep. Here he was arresting you for drugs, when he himself is a pot head. Looks like Smyrma should start drug testing their policeman. Can't be to careful these days when there's always somebody masquerading.
