Alabama men facing drug charges

Two Alabama men were taken into custody recently by the Cullman Narcotics Enforcement Team on unrelated drug charges. The first man was arrested for the alleged drug manufacturing of methamphetamine. The second man was reportedly distributing prescription pills in a store parking lot.

The first arrest stemmed from a search conducted on June 8. In that search, authorities allegedly found evidence that led to a charge of second-degree unlawful manufacturing of a controlled substance. When the man was arrested on Oct. 25, officers found coffee filters and bags with a white substance in them. The officers say that these common household materials tested positive for traces of meth. Authorities charged the man with second-degree unlawful manufacturing of a controlled substance.

The Cullman Narcotics Enforcement Team went throughout the county conducting a drug roundup in June. Police say they could have charged the man with an additional manufacturing charge then, but instead waited until last month when they served the man with a search warrant.

The second man was arrested on three counts of unlawful distribution of a controlled substance. Police claim he sold prescription drugs to undercover officers at a local Kmart store. According to the officers, he was selling Xanax and hydrocodone pills.

Both Alabama men may benefit from the assistance of an experienced criminal defense attorney. The attorney may be able to ascertain the admissibility of certain items of evidence that police purportedly found. They may also assist with the preparation and presentation of a strong defense while fighting for an outright acquittal or an agreement of lesser charges.
