Smyrna police arrested 49-year-old Kenyon Conley on Nov. 1 on multiple charges related to the distribution and possession of cocaine. According to the warrant, police received a tip that Conley was holding illegal drug sales from the driveway of his home only 300 feet from Rose Garden School and 30 feet away from its park. Conley allegedly was waiting in his parked, maroon-colored Dodge van when police apprehended him, asked to search his vehicle, and escorted him to the Smyrna Police Dept.
Once there, officers found a sandwich bag with 51 “jewel bags” of cocaine in the backseat of the patrol car where Conley had been seated.
Conley is charged with intent to distribute cocaine, manufacturing a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school, and manufacturing a controlled substance near a public park.
Conley has been issued no bond and has yet to be released from jail, according to inmate records.
