NASHVILLE, GA (WALB) – Marijuana certainly wasn't one of Colonel Sanders eleven secret herbs and spices. But drug agents say pot was just one illegal substance on the menu at a south Georgia KFC.
Nashville is buzzing after a bust at the popular restaurant in town.
"I didn't expect to hear that," said resident Ashton Roberts.
"It shocked me," said David Hall.
The hot menu item at the Nashville KFC is the pot pie combo. It reads so on the sign outside the business.
Ironically, it was a combination of pot and other drugs which police say the manager was selling at the restaurant. Nashville Police raided KFC Friday morning and found much more than chicken and the fixings'.
"We rode by the other morning and they had yellow tape all around it and we heard it was getting busted for drugs," Roberts said.
Marijuana and pain pills to be exact. Police arrested 31-year-old Jim Harris of Alapaha at the KFC he managed. Along with Oxycodone, Vicodin, and Hydrocodone, agents also confiscated a .38 caliber Smith and Wesson.
David Hall joked, "I was wondering what one of the original recipes was."
Folks tell us the drive through was bustling at times. And while police wouldn't tell us if Harris was actually selling drugs through the drive thru, they did say they were acting on a tip that narcotics were being sold and used at KFC.
"It was a neat little cover up. I don't know how long he was getting by with it," Hall said.
Police staked out KFC and had enough surveillance and evidence to get a warrant. And while the manager is now in the Berrien County Jail facing a host of charges, the restaurant made famous by the colonel, is still open for business.
Nashville Police wouldn't say if they plan to make more arrests. The charges pending against Harris include possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
