Rocky Face man found with large amount of meth after crashing stolen motorcycle in Gordon County

According to a Georgia State Patrol incident report, On Monday, March 13th, 2023, at 1:27 PM, Trooper Townsend was dispatched to GA-136 and GA-225 in reference to a single-vehicle motorcycle crash. Trooper Townsend reported, “While investigating the crash, [I] observed a wrecked 2009 Honda CBR motorcycle with a license plate that was covered in dried mud that was not from the crash, and obscuring the plate to the point that it was unreadable without wiping the mud off. The motorcycle was spray-painted black, with evidence of the red paint underneath. [I] also observed that the driver, Mr. Logan Chase Branson, 24, of Rocky Face, was visibly shaken up and continued to walk around the scene even though advising that he was hurting based on his statements. Due to this, [I] walked down to check for a VIN on the motorcycle and located one on the frame rail. [I] copied the VIN down and began returning to my patrol vehicle to check the vehicle through NCIC, along with the driver’s information that he was able to provide (name and date of birth) due to his advising that he did not have his license with him. I ran the vehicle through Georgia, and the license plate (7208ML-GA) returned expired to a 1997 Yamaha motorcycle, and the VIN attached did not match the one written down, nor did the make of the motorcycle match the bike [I] observed. [I] then checked the VIN through Georgia, and the motorcycle returned stolen out of Cobb County, Georgia.” Gordon County Deputies were advised that Branson tossed two large gallon-size Ziploc bags with a large amount of meth. EMS transported Branson to the hospital for a broken collarbone. Trooper Townsend contacted the GBI West Metro Drug Task Force and advised them of the situation regarding the large amounts of meth. Branson was transported and booked into the Gordon County Jail, where he was charged with several traffic violations and felony theft by receiving stolen property. GBI will be taking charges regarding the meth.
