Bainbridge Public Safety Investigator Chris Jordan said that BPS received reports of a male selling drugs, and upon driving around the area, located a male that fit the description walking down College Street with another man.

“We asked [Collins] if he had anything on him, and he said, ‘No.’ We asked to search him, and he consented,” Jordan said. “He had a piece of crack and five bags of marijuana on him.”

Jordan said that Greene was charged for giving a false name to officers.
