Meth suspect denied bond

THOMASVILLE — An Ochlocknee man out on bond in a previous drug case was denied bond and remains in the Grady County Jail on a methamphetamine charge.

Robert Kyle French, 46, 4443 Highway 188, Ochlocknee, fled from Thomasville Post 12 Georgia State Patrol troopers and Grady County Sheriff’s office investigators after being spotted on Ansley Road.

Investigators received information that French would transport methamphetamine to a site in Grady County. Officers saw the vehicle and French and attempted a traffic stop.

French fled, said Lt. Steve Clark, sheriff’s office chief investigator.

“We finally got the vehicle stopped on Stagecoach Road off Ansley Road, still in Grady County,” Clark said.

More than five ounces of suspected methamphetamine were recovered, along with a small-caliber, loaded handgun.

French is charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, fleeing and attempting to elude, failure to stop at stop sign, reckless driving and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

Clark said French was out on bond on a previous charge of manufacturing methamphetamine.
