Gregory Greene, drug smuggler runs from police then throws cocaine off bridge VIDEO

An accused drug smuggler tries to ditch a kilo of cocaine by tossing it off a bridge and into a river after high-speed chase with police in Albany, Georgia on Thursday.

Video from the Albany Dougherty Drug Unit shows law enforcement move in to stop the 2013 Dodge Challenger after a high-speed chase through traffic. The driver jumps out of the moving car and throws a package into the river.  Then he immediately surrenders.

 Gregory Greene, age 43, of Albany was the driver and police say he threw a kilo of cocaine worth about $120,000 off the bridge.

The drug dealer didn’t realize that the tightly-wrapped package would float nor that the incident was being recorded on police dash cam.

“Because it was so well sealed, you could not get any kind of odor from it,” said ADDU Commander Major Bill Berry. “And that also prevented it from taking on water or absorbing water and sinking.  And it just floated right around.”
