Expired tag leads to discovery of illegal gun, methamphetamine
ORANGE PARK – A Georgia man who failed to renew his license tag three weeks ago wound up going to jail on a variety of drug and weapon charges.
David Lee Rucker, 33, of Elberton, Georgia, was charged committing a first-degree felony with a firearm, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, trafficking in methamphetamine and possession of marijuana.
According to the Clay County Sheriff’s Office, Rucker’s car was stopped on Wells Road July 1 after a deputy noticed the tag expired on June 17. During the stop, K-9 Odin alerted deputies to the possible presence of illegal drugs in the car. A search uncovered a loaded handgun was sticking out of a seat pocket, as well as plastic bags with methamphetamine in Rucker’s waistband.
Rucker, who also was given a warning for the expired tag, is being held on a $275,508 bond.
