Police respond to loud music, find cocaine

BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) - A man who ran from public safety officers was carrying a dozen small bags of cocaine, authorities said.

It happened Saturday night at Rivers Apartments on Lake Drive.

When officers arrived to a report of loud music, they saw two men standing by a car.

One of the men, later identified as Markeith Chrispen, ducked away and took off running when he saw the officers, throwing a bag into some nearby bushes.

They chased and tackled Chrispen, and recovered 12 small bags of cocaine from the bushes.

Chrispen was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, and also within 1,000 feet of a park of housing project, and obstructing or hindering officers.
