BAY MINETTE — A Georgia man is facing numerous charges following a routine stop by Baldwin County Sheriff’s Deputies on U.S. 90 in Elsanor.

Christopher N. Garrett, 33, of Cartersville, Georgia, is being charged with trafficking in methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, first degree, possession of a concealed weapon without a permit, driving under the influence and attempting to elude law enforcement. Garrett also has federal warrants for counterfeiting and drug conspiracy.

According to a release issued Thursday by the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Department, he is being held at the Baldwin County Corrections Center.

According to the release, Baldwin County Sheriff Deputies attempted to stop a 2015 Chevy Camaro for speeding on Wednesday on U.S. 90 in the Elsanor community.

The vehicle fled from deputies and a pursuit was initiated. The vehicle came to a stop after it had engine troubles and deputies were able to take a person initially identified as 46-year-old Bradley Lee Layland of St. Augustine Beach, Florida, into custody.

After interviewing the suspect, deputies discovered that the suspect was in fact Garrett. Garrett was initially arrested for attempting to elude and driving under the influence. A search of the vehicle revealed over 3.2 pounds of methamphetamine, counterfeit currency, marijuana, along with a pistol.

Garrett is currently being held without bond.
