WHITFIELD COUNTY, GA -

(Times Free Press) - Happy birthday. Here's your meth.

Whitfield County Sheriff's Office deputies stopped an Acura 3.5 RL in Dalton, Ga., on Tuesday night at the corner of Summer Road and Georgia State Route 201. Inside the car, police said, in the back seat, in a box draped in zebra-print wrapping paper with a pink bow on top, they found $50,000 worth of methamphetamine.

Capt. Rick Swiney said the department's narcotics unit received a tip before Tuesday night. A man and woman from Canton would be coming to town to make a delivery.

So three officers and a Georgia State Patrol trooper waited on the highway and watched for the Acura. When they saw it, the officers pulled over 31-year-old David Willie Baker and 18-year-old Kathleen Frances Williams.
