A $45 transaction conducted via mobile application led Marietta Police to a man in possession of multiple drugs, hundreds of dollars in cash and a stolen gun, according to an arrest warrant.

Treavon Malik Perry, 24, is now facing multiple drug charges and other crimes, according to the warrant.

A traffic stop late Saturday led police to discover a bag of cocaine in a woman’s car, according to the warrant. Upon questioning, the woman showed a Marietta officer a copy of a transaction done through the CashApp mobile phone application and said she had purchased the substance from the seller in his hotel room in the 2100 block of Northwest Parkway, south of Delk Road.

CashApp, which allows its users to transfer money to one another, is a popular payment service with more than 245,000 ratings on the App Store and Google Play combined.

At the hotel, officers allegedly found Perry in possession of more than 110 grams of marijuana, nearly 35 grams of Ecstasy, THC oil, two baggies of suspected cocaine and bags of suspected methamphetamine, MDMA and heroin, according to the warrant.

Also within the room was $2,780 in cash broken up in several denominations, which authorities cited as evidence Perry had intent to distribute the drugs, the warrant states.

A handgun reported stolen in July 2018 was also found in Perry’s room, according to the warrant.

Facing 11 felony counts altogether, Perry has remained in the Cobb County Adult Detention Center without bond since his arrest early Sunday, jail records showed Thursday.
