Weekend Drug Arrests


Sheriff Jimmy Harris states as follows:


            On April 29, 2017 a DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office deputy conducted a traffic stop on county road 44 in the Guest Community. During the stop both the driver and passenger were found to be in possession of methamphetamine. Illegal prescription pills and drug paraphernalia were also found in the vehicle. John Amos Narron, 28, of Crossville was arrested and charged with unlawful possession of controlled substance, illegal possession of prescription pills, and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. Tracey Lynn Freeman, 38, of Fort Payne was arrested and charged with unlawful possession of controlled substance and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

            Also on April 29, deputies responded to a call on Municipal Drive in Fort Payne concerning possible drug activity. Once on scene deputies confronted a male and female subject outside the residence. While investigating for possible drug activity, drug paraphernalia and illegal prescription pills were located. Heather Mckenzie Perryman, 33, of Fort Payne and Billy Earl Mcclendon, 42, of Fort Payne were arrested and charged with unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

            On Friday April 28, 2017, DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office K-9 units conducted searches of Crossville High School and Fyffe High School. During the search of Fyffe High School a juvenile was found to have marijuana in a locker as well as Xanax on their person. The case has been turned over to the Juvenile Probation Office.

            Sheriff Harris states: “The deputies and our police departments working together help us continue the fight against drugs in our county. Our two K-9 units are a vital part in our efforts to combat illegal drug activity on the road and in our schools. Superintendent Barnett continues to work closely with the Sheriff’s Office in order to keep our schools safe.”
