[April 20, 2010]  ALBANY, Ga. (AP) -- Albany authorities did a double take when they arrested a man twice on the same drug charge in one day.

Authorities said a man, 26, was charged with possession of marijuana around noon on Friday after police pulled him over during a routine traffic stop. He was sent to the Dougherty County Jail and released on bond four hours later.

But Bill Berry of the Albany-Dougherty Drug Unit says police soon received a tip that the man was trying to set up a drug deal. He said the suspect was arrested again at 6:30 p.m. Friday after authorities found him with two ounces of marijuana on him and charged a second time with possession of the drug.

This time, though, Berry said he stayed in Dougherty County Jail with no bond.
