The Office of State Attorney Glenn Hess announces that on June 14, 2019, Joshua Nathan Foster was found guilty as charged of Trafficking More Than 200 Grams of Methamphetamine, Carrying a Concealed Firearm, Possession of Marijuana and Possession of Paraphernalia. This conviction stemmed from an arrest on August 6, 2017.

The case was a joint investigation between Bay County Sheriff’s Office and the United States Drug Enforcement Administration. Sentencing is scheduled for July 16, 2019, before the Honorable Brantley S. Clark, Jr., where the State will seek to have the defendant sentenced as a Habitual Felony Offender.
