A manager at a Martinez golf and country club was recently arrested for drug possession at work.

Edilberto Morales Diaz, 35, is the manager of the Men’s Grille at West Lake Country Club. He was arrested Monday and charged with possession of methamphetamine and trafficking methamphetamine.

Columbia County sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris said Diaz’s arrest was the result of a joint investigation with the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office.

Authorities from both counties arrested Diaz, of Lakeside Loop in Hephzibah, outside of West Lake Monday evening, according to Morris. Deputies searched the Toyota truck he was driving and his office at the country club. They found 59 grams of methamphetamine in his truck and another 15 grams in his office, Morris said.

Diaz is being held in the Columbia County Detention Center without bond, according to jail records.
