During a Search at Wiggins and Nash there was approximately 100 controlled pills seized as well as an undetermined amount of SPICE, Methamphetamine, Scales and one firearm.

During this search several items were seized that are possibly stolen from various locations in DeKalb County.

Sheriff Harris says “I am glad that all these agents came together, they did a great job working this case. I am also thankful for all the agencies, the House and the Senate that have past these Bills, and to Governor Bentley for signing them into Law. This is not the end this is only the beginning. We will continue to work day and night to try to protect our citizens of DeKalb County from these drugs.”
