'Casual' smoking of pot and prowling end in arrest

Graham

CAIRO — Authorities say a suspect found prowling around a Grady County residence was "casually" smoking marijuana when law enforcement arrived.

When deputies with the Grady County Sheriff's Office arrived at the residence on the 5000 block of U.S. Highway 84 East, they found Julian Lee Graham smoking a marijuana cigar in the backyard.

A sheriff's office press release states that Graham was found to be in possession of an undisclosed amount of cash, multiple bags of marijuana, an unidentified "crystal-like" substance and a loaded Ruger P90 handgun.

Graham was transported to the Grady County Detention Center where he remains in custody on charges of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
