by | Aug 31, 2023 | Conviction Alert, news

Peach County, Georgia—Clinton Mitchell, Jr., 37, recently pled guilty to Trafficking in Methamphetamine and Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon in Peach Superior Court.  A large amount of methamphetamine was located in Mitchell’s residence on Walden Street in Fort Valley when the Peach County Drug Enforcement Unit executed a search warrant there on May 11, 2023.  Upon hearing the officers, Mitchell initially tried to flush the drugs in the toilet, but was not successful in his efforts.  Mitchell was sentenced to 30 years, with the first 10 to be served in prison.

“Drug traffickers cannot be tolerated bringing their dangerous influences into our communities.  When caught, they will be subject to harsh penalties under the law.  I give high praise to the efforts of our Drug Enforcement Units throughout the Circuit and their efforts to make our communities safer places to live and to work.”  District Attorney Anita Howard

The Macon Judicial Circuit District Attorney’s Office especially thanks the work and combined energies of the Peach County Drug Enforcement Unit, made up of officers with the Peach County Sheriff’s Office; Byron Police Department; and, the Crawford County Sheriff’s Office,  for their assistance with the swift prosecution of this case.
