Joint Operation leads to Five Arrests


On 6/3/15 in a joint operation, Franklin Co. Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Unit and ALEA Narcotics agents conducted a controlled buy of a trafficking amount of methamphetamine with a street value of $2800.00 dollars.

Following the initial buy Franklin County Narcotics investigators and ALEA agents conducted surveillance of the initial target and identified the supplier of the methamphetamine that was purchased. A traffic stop of the supplier was initiated and the money used in the controlled buy as well as an additional quantity of methamphetamine was recovered. In addition, two other subjects in the vehicle with the supplier were found to have outstanding warrants and were arrested.

Following this arrest, the investigation led to a source of supply in Haleyville in Winston County.

Franklin County Narcotics agents, ALEA agents, Winston County Sheriff’s Narcotics investigators and Winston County DA's Office investigators continued the investigation into the source of supply. Information was gathered that ultimately led to a search warrant at a home in Haleyville.
