Police: 13-year-old fled on foot after discarding narcotics


A 13-year-old Griffin youth was arrested Tuesday after police say he fled from officers.

According to a press release issued by the Griffin Police Department, as officers of the C.A.G.E. and Special Investigation units approached the boy at 118 Tinsley St., he allegedly discarded a bag of narcotics and attempted to flee on foot.

The discarded bag was found to contain 19 suspected ecstasy pills, authorities say.
He was soon apprehended without further incident.

Officials say he was unable to escape due to a self-inflicted gunshot wound sustained approximately two weeks ago.

The juvenile was transported to the Martha Glaze Youth Detention Center, and the drug case was turned over to the juvenile justice system.
