During a recent shakedown at the Macon Transitional Center, officers reportedly found about 20 grams of synthetic marijuana on an inmate.
Desmond Leroy Grant, 26, was taken from the center and returned to Central State Prison, according to an email from Georgia Department of Corrections spokeswoman Gwendolyn Hogan. The transition center is a minimum-security facility for male felons preparing to re-enter society.
Grant, of Laurens County, is charged with possessing drugs and items prohibited to inmates.
He had been serving time since 2012 for terrorist threats and acts as well as a possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, records show.
Before the most recent case, he was set to be released just five days after his birthday in April.
Fake marijuana is a mixture of dried herbs that’s been sprayed with a chemical compound that mimics marijuana’s effects.
