A 53-year-old man from Riverdale was recently sentenced to 10 years in prison for the offense of drug trafficking in Jones County Superior Court.

Richard Dewayne Marshall pled guilty to trafficking in methamphetamine April 25 and will receive credit for all the time he has served since his arrest Sept. 4, 2010.

Marshall was arrested with two other men, Stephen Lee Baker, 25, of Macon, and Randall Eugene Patrick, 30, of Forest City, N.C. All three of the men were arrested on charges of theft by receiving stolen property, forgery, and possession of dangerous drugs.

Assistant District Attorney Keagan Goodrich said the property owner, who was the father of one of the suspects, called Jones County deputies to the crime scene. The father reported the suspected theft of one of his vehicles.
