When investigators searched the house, they found about 7 ounces of methamphetamine, scales and baggies “for sale purposes,” the sheriff’s office said. Deputies also found a small amount of marijuana and a handgun.
“Spencer, who has no job, was in possession of approximately $4,000 to $5,000 in drug money,” the sheriff’s office said.
Spencer was taken to the Clayton County Jail, where he remains. He is charged with possession of a firearm by a felon, two counts of violation of the Georgia Controlled Substance Act, use or possession of drug-related objects, possession of marijuana and possession of a weapon during a crime.
Spencer served a five-year sentence in the 1990s for cocaine possession and marijuana sale and distribution in Clayton County, according to Georgia Department of Corrections records.
