The Dade County Sheriff’s Office arrested two Alabama men on Sep. 12 with possession and intended distribution of methamphetamine after two bags were found inside the suspects’ vehicle.
According to a Facebook post from the DCSO, a deputy initiated a traffic stop after observing a blue pickup truck traveling on Wells road at a high rate of speed. The situation intensified when it was learned that the tag on the truck was stolen.
The suspects were initially detained for further investigation due to the stolen tag. After investigating further, two bags of methamphetamine were found as well as multiple unused baggies believed to be for the distribution of the drugs. It was also determined that the pickup truck was not stolen – only the tag.
Kennedy Marion of Bryant, Al. and Adam Chapman of Henegar, Al. were charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession with the intent to distribute methamphetamine and theft.
“Sheriff Ray Cross encourages the Patrol Division to concentrate patrol in high crime and known drug areas in efforts to deter these criminal activities,” DCSO Public Information Officer Hailey Smith said. “No matter the quantity, we are committed to removing illegal narcotics from our communities.”
