Danny Lamar Chancey, 48, of Blackshear, was sentenced to 86 months after pleading guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, WSAV reported.

Chancey was indicted in March in a complaint filed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of Georgia, according to a news release.

According to the release, in September 2019, a Pierce County Sheriff’s Office investigator and an officer from the Georgia Department of Community Supervision visited Chancey’s residence as part of a routine check. Chancey was on probation from a state conviction for possession of meth, WSAV reported.

The officials discovered multiple small and large bags containing meth, along with materials used for distribution, the television station reported.

Police also discovered a notebook of information on the Ghost Face Gangsters, a violent white supremacist street gang, WSAV reported. According to police, Chancey admitted he was a member of the gang, the television station reported.

After Chancey completes his federal prison term, he will be required to serve three years of supervised release, according to WSAV.
