THOMASVILLE, GA (WTXL) - Police are looking for a man wanted for marijuana possession with the intent to distribute.

The Thomasville Police Department is looking for 31-year-old Gary Pringle after receiving a tip that someone was selling drugs near Pine Tree Blvd.

Officers say a family member let them into a mobile home where they could smell marijuana.

A search warrant was obtained by officers and they say Pringle was at the mobile home, but since he was not under arrest at the time, he was free to leave.

During the search of the building, officers found a total of 8 oz of marijuana in 130 individual bags, $800 in cash, and a loaded 25 caliber hand gun in a pillowcase.

Pringle was unable to be located by officers after the search.

Pringle is also wanted for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and for using a firearm during the commission of a crime.
