A Douglasville man was convicted of multiple drug charges in a Cobb County court stemming from a hotel incident last May.
Ralph Timothy Wages, 46, of Douglasville, was found guilty of trafficking in methamphetamine, possession of oxycodone, possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, theft by receiving, and giving false information to a law-enforcement officer. Also, Alicia Barrett, 31, of Villa Rica, was found guilty of possession of methamphetamine in the same case.
Cobb District Attorney Vic Reynolds announced Tuesday convictions on Friday, March 28, stemmed from an incident last May at a hotel near Vinings.
According to a press release, Wages and Barrett were staying in a room at the La Quinta Inn on Paces Ferry Road on May 24, 2013, when police answered complaints of an odd odor coming from their room.
Police uncovered a large quantity of drugs and evidence of intent to distribute.
