17 Year-Old Busted by Franklinton PD After Instagram Post - Subtitle: "When going Instagram LIVE goes wrong"

The following provided by Franklinton Police Chief Justin Brown on Tuesday (March 5, 2024):

At least one 17 year old Instagram user didn't experience a social media outage today. Sgt. Trey Johnson didn't experience an outage either which led him to conducting a search warrant based on the IG user's social media post showcasing a sizeable amount money from drugs.

The IG user bragged that "I got drugs for days" while waving around a stack of cash and soliciting further drug sales. He stated, "Get at me" and that's exactly what Sgt. Johnson did. The 17 year old was already on probation for, get this, Aggravated Assault of a law enforcement officer. Yea, Sgt. Johnson just happened to be that officer the 17 year old previously pulled a gun on. 

For today's transgressions, the charges include; Possession with Intent to Distribute Fentanyl, Possession of Schedule IV Drugs, Possession of Marijuana, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and probation violation.

The drug money has been seized and will be submitted for forfeiture.

"Get at me" indeed!

As always, suspects are presumed innocent until convicted by a court of law.
