ALBANY — Following an older-model, blue Cadillac paid off for local drug agents Wednesday. Not so for the passenger in the car.
Waheed, aka Wahood, Johnson, 29, the passenger, was caught with 7.5 ounces of marijuana Wednesday morning, said Maj. Bill Berry of the Albany-Dougherty Drug Unit. Johnson is being held in the Dougherty County Jail.
Johnson is charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and obstruction of an officer, a jail spokeswoman said, adding his first appearance before a judge is today. Drug agents are searching for the driver of the car, who ran away, leaving the Cadillac in an alley between Cotton and Corn avenues.
As is typical when there is a police operation near a school, the Gifted Education L.I.F.E. Lab at 911 S. McKinley St. was locked down for the protection of students and staff.
