VALDOSTA, Fla. (WCTV) - The Valdosta Police Department made a narcotics arrest Tuesday morning in the 1000 block of North Trop Street.

A police officer saw individuals sitting in Tom’s Park after hours around 12:30 a.m., according to Valdosta Police.

While investigating what they were doing in a closed park, the officers noticed 36-year-old Meleka Burrows of Valdosta walking away with a backpack.

When the officers approached her and checked her bag, Valdosta Police said they found baggies of alpha-PVP, pills and objects commonly used with the smoking of narcotics. Alpha-PVP is commonly known as Flakka and is similar to “bath salts,” according to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.
