Meth on Mike Padgett

An Augusta man has been charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute.

Ryan Malone, a 23-year-old who lives along the 3500 block of Mike Padgett Highway, was busted Monday on the felony offense.

Mr. Malone is part of a growing trend of meth abuse. In fact, statistics show that meth use and abuse is a $23.4 billion problem in the United States and a $1.3 billion problem in Georgia. In the most recent statistics, 32 percent of the federal drug offenses in Georgia are meth-related.


  1. i just happen to know this young man and he is a loving father of two beautiful children and has a beautiful wife. he just happen to get laid off work and ended up getting in with the wrong group of young men,like most kids does.hopely this experience will teach him a valueable leason in life,and he will turn out to be the person i have always known this young man to be. good luck to him and his family.

  2. I guess you would say that he got caught up .. and i suspose all mothers would make excuses for their children and say that it is because of who they were hanging around but really he made his own choice to do it . I mean come on .
    Hopefully he will learn to get a real job, and do right by his kids if not for his self.

  3. Just another f--- up.
