19+ Year Prison Sentence For Florida Fugitive Caught Transporting Meth In Georgia

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


MACON, Ga. – A fugitive wanted for trafficking methamphetamine in Florida was sentenced to 235 months in prison today after he was caught by Georgia State Patrol (GSP) troopers transporting nearly three kilos of methamphetamine on I-75, said Charles “Charlie” Peeler, the United States Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia.

U.S. District Judge Marc Treadwell sentenced Jeremy Taylor, 29, of Cottondale, Florida, to 235 months in prison after pleading guilty to possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. There is no parole in the federal system.

Taylor was pulled over by a GSP trooper on February 19, 2019, while driving on I-75 in Dooly County, Vienna, Georgia. Taylor presented a false identification at first, then later gave troopers his true name. Troopers discovered Taylor had warrants out for his arrest for trafficking methamphetamine from Bay County, Panama City, Florida, and a failure to appear on aggravated assault from Holmes County, Bonifay, Florida. During a legal search of the vehicle, troopers confiscated three shoeboxes containing three bags of methamphetamine, for a total of 2,435.85 grams after taking into account the purity.

“Methamphetamine suppliers who attempt to use Georgia as a supply line for trafficking drugs will be punished. We will fight the destructive distribution of narcotics and seek the maximum penalties for criminal drug dealers caught in the Middle District of Georgia,” said U.S. Attorney Charlie Peeler. “I want to thank GSP and the Dooly County Sheriff’s Office for their work investigating the case, as well as GBI and DEA for their continued daily cooperation helping us bring drug traffickers to justice.”

The case was investigated by the Dooly County Sheriff’s Office, GSP, GBI and DEA. Assistant U.S. Attorney Steven Ouzts prosecuted the case for the Government. Questions can be directed to Pamela Lightsey, Public Information Officer, United States Attorney’s Office, at (478) 621-2603 or Melissa Hodges, Public Affairs Director (Contractor), United States Attorney’s Office, at (478) 765-2362.
