CAIRO, GA (WALB) - A Grady Co. man entered a guilty plea before the Senior U.S. District Court Judge W. Louis Sands in Albany, Georgia on April 30, 2018.

Corey Jackie Smith, 28, of Cairo, Georgia pled guilty to Possession with the Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine. Smith could get 40 years in prison, and a maximum fine of $5,000,000 said Charles E. Peeler, United States Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia.

Officers were attempting to execute outstanding arrest warrants for Smith in September of 2016 and saw him throw a golf-ball sized package of Meth into a storage room. They also got him on video doing it.

"Methamphetamine is a poison that continues to ruin the lives of those who choose to use it and the lives of their families. Individuals who choose to deal methamphetamine will continue to be a target of the United States Attorney's Office in the Middle District of Georgia," said Peeler.

This case was investigated by the Cairo Police Department. Assistant United States Attorney Leah E. McEwen prosecuted the case for the United States.
