Georgia man trafficking Methamphetamine and Cocaine arrested in Kenner

 Kenner - On Sunday, March 6, 2016, Justin Hembree, 28, of Covington, Georgia was arrested by members of the Kenner Police Department and charged with the crimes of illegal possession with the intent to distribute Methamphetamine 168.1 grams (Crystal Meth), illegal possession with the intent to distribute Cocaine (15.9 grams), and illegal possession of Alprazolam (8 tablets).

 Hembree was the passenger of a vehicle stopped in the 400 block of East Louisiana State Dr., for speeding.  During the traffic stop Hembree appeared nervous, and upon speaking to the office gave conflicting accounts to his whereabouts prior to the stop, and where he was enroute to.  Suspecting there may be narcotics inside the vehicle, Hembree and the driver of the vehicle consented to a search which revealed a brown computer bag in the front passenger compartment of the vehicle, which Hembree advised belongs to him.  Inside the bag the above listed drugs were located, which Hembree claimed ownership of.

 At the time of this press release, Hembree remains in custody; his bond was set at $90,000.

 Kenner Police Chief Michael J. Glaser urges and encourages anyone with information concerning anyone possessing or distrubting illegal narcotics to call the Kenner Police Drug Hotline at (504) 466-3073 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.  Callers can remain anonymous.
