While executing a search warrant on Chateau Drive, Rome police and Rome-Floyd Metro Drug Task Force arrested two men on drug charges.

According to Floyd County Jail reports:

Derick Wayne Mobbs, 36, of Silver Creek, Derek Scott Worthington, 45, had methamphetamine packaged for resale, less than an ounce of marijuana and a glass smoking device.

Officers also found that Mobbs had an arrest warrant from May 14, where he detained a woman in a vehicle and refused to let her leave as he drove down Glenn Milner Boulevard.

When she did try to leave, he stopped and struck her in the face with a closed fist multiple times.

Both Mobbs and Worthington are charged with meth possession, intent to distribute, misdemeanor marijuana possession and drug-related objects possession.

Mobbs is charged with felony adult kidnapping, false imprisonment, and misdemeanor family violence battery. Both were held without bond Thursday afternoon.
