Stephens wanted by district attorney

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Dougherty County District Attorney's office has issued a lookout for 33 year Quincy Stephens. They say Stephens cut off his electronic monitor Sunday, and can't be located.

He was arrested in February of 2015, for running from police following a traffic stop at the Albany Mall, with had three ounces of marijuana in his pockets.

They had stopped Stephens for speeding and driving on a suspended license, so they handcuffed him, and found nearly $2,000 worth of pot in his pocket.

Police say Stephens ran, and still handcuffed, tried to hide inside a dumpster, where he was captured.

Albany Dougherty Drug Unit Sergeant Victor Camp said at the time, "We're still going to see the marijuana around here. We're not getting as much as we used to in the past. But the drug sort of fluctuates.  Sometimes we'll get a lot of marijuana.  A lot of cocaine.  And it dies down."

Stephens was released from jail the next day on an $8,800 bond.
