ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany man has pleaded guilty to trafficking meth a year after he was arrested for throwing large chunks of methamphetamine while running from a police officer.
36-year-old Kenley Grissom was sentenced to 17 years in prison, and banned from Dougherty and Lee Counties for 30 years on probation.
Grissom pleaded guilty to trafficking meth, possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, and DUI.
Prosecutors said on October 14, 2013, Grissom crashed his car on Beattie Road. When a police officer drove up, Grissom ran down the road, throwing crystal ice meth.
According to a report, Grissom was described as "hallucinating, irrational, and ridiculous."
Drug agents found more than a pound of meth, with a street value of $40,000, making it one of the largest meth seizures in Albany at that time.
They also found cocaine and pills. Grissom was out of jail on bond at the time after he was arrested on drug and bank robbery charges.
