January 16, 2020

 

FORT PAYNE, Ala. — On Monday afternoon, Jan, 13, the DeKalb County (Ala.) Narcotics and Interdiction Unit conducted a search warrant on County Road 577 at the residence of Craig Bodiford (left) after aggressively working the Powell area.

 

The interdiction unit made approximately 30 drug arrests over the course of two months in the area stemming from traffic stops that led agents to the home. During the execution of the search warrant, 25 pounds of marijuana was located, as well as two firearms, synthetic marijuana (spice), methamphetamine, illegal prescription pills and drug paraphernalia.

 

The 25 pounds of marijuana included loose marijuana and one block wrapped in plastic weighing approximately 18 pounds.

 

An infant was also located in the home, and the Department of Human Resources (DHR) was contacted.

 

Eleven people in total were arrested at the home. One of those arrested was a 17-old-juvenile. The juvenile was transported to the Anniston Juvenile Detention Center.

 

Sheriff Welden said the arrests were a good example of how proactive patrolling can generate intelligence that leads to getting large amounts of narcotics off the street.

 

“This is the reason that we interlink our interdiction and narcotics agents. The intelligence received during traffic stops can be utilized to find the source of illegal drugs in our county. These guys are prepared to continue their hard work to curb the flow of poison in our county,” he said.

  •  

    Brandon Tyler Bodiford (right), 23, of Rainsville, Ala., who was charged with trafficking in any illegal drug and possession of drug paraphernalia
