Brantley fugitive nabbed by Glynn County officials

Special to SEGAZINE

Sought by Glynn County Police

Captured by Glynn County Police

The Brant­ley Enter­prise has learned that a Brant­ley County fugi­tive wanted on sev­eral war­rants who escaped an exten­sive man­hunt in south­west Glynn County by local and state police on the ground and in the air Monday, has been captured by Glynn officials.

The search, which began after 5 p.m. and went on well past 9 p.m., com­menced when two sus­pects fled a res­i­dence at 495 Old Brook­man Road and while the search did not include Brant­ley offi­cials it drew ques­tions from Brant­ley res­i­dents about the activ­ity just across the county line.

The two sus­pects who bolted from the house were Jere­miah Ben­nett, who is wanted by the Brant­ley County Sheriff’s Office on a num­ber of war­rants, and Ger­ald Ash­ley Smith.

Smith tripped and fell while try­ing to flee and was quickly taken into cus­tody, but Ben­nett made it to the woods and was able to evade police the rest of the night.

Smith was charged with the alleged man­u­fac­ture of metham­phet­a­mine, a home­made stim­u­lant sold on the streets, after police found an alleged meth lab inside the Brook­man Roley.

Ben­nett is wanted in Brant­ley County on war­rants for rob­bery, aggra­vated bat­tery and pos­ses­sion of a firearm by a felon. He also is wanted for allegedly man­u­fac­tur­ing meth.
