Grand jury delivers new indictments

ALBANY, Ga. -- An attempted routine traffic stop in January has resulted in 29 grand jury indictments.

As part of all-day session of the Dougherty County grand jury, Gregory Tushin Greene was delivered 29 separate indictments Wednesday in a case involving cocaine trafficking, attempts to elude police and traffic violations.

According to police accounts from Jan. 2, when officers attempted to make a traffic stop on Greene's 2013 Dodge Challenger, a high-speed chase ensued. Racing law enforcement agents from the 1400 block of Moultrie Road to the bridge at Oakridge Drive, Greene stopped his vehicle, got out and threw a package into the Flint River.

The package was retrieved by firefighters and agents of the Albany-Dougherty Drug Unit, who launched a boat from a Radium Springs boat landing. According to reports, the package was found to contain 1,217 grams of cocaine, worth an estimated $100,000 on the street.

Greene's indictments include numerous counts of cocaine trafficking, tampering with evidence, fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer, reckless driving, speeding, failure to stop at a stop sign and other traffic-related offenses.

Cassandra Jean James, described by Dougherty County District Attorney Greg Edwards as Greene's apparent girlfriend, was indicted along with Greene on one count of possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, one count of trafficking in cocaine and one count of conspiracy to commit trafficking in cocaine.
