WTOC-TV: Savannah, Beaufort, SC, News, Weather & Sports

A police lieutenant and dispatcher in Savanah, Georgia were fired after deputies discovered cocaine in their car during a traffic stop.

According to WTOC, Savannah police Lt. Mike Wilson and his girlfriend, dispatcher Irene Gould, were pulled over Saturday in neighboring Beaufort County, South Carolina, for driving a car with a broken light over the license plate.

An arrest report indicates the couple gave consent to search the car, and deputies found a cocaine in a pack of cigarettes.

Gould was charged with cocaine possession and Wilson was cited for the broken light. Savannah police spokeswoman Keturah Green said Wednesday that both Wilson and Gould had been terminated.

It was not immediately known if either officers had an attorney.
