MEDIA RELEASE

 

For Immediate lease                                              August 8, 2018

 

                       Woman Arrested for Trafficking Drugs

 

Sheriff Jimmy Harris states as follows:

 

 

            On the date of August 7th a DeKalb County Deputy pulled over a vehicle for a traffic violation at the intersection of County Road 3 and Highway 75. When the Deputy approached the vehicle to talk to the driver Patti Kim Murphy, 61 of Albertville she seemed nervous. The Deputy asked if she had any illegal drugs or weapons inside the vehicle and she stated no. At which time an Albertville Officer and his K-9 came to assist. The K-9 alerted on the driver’s side door and on the inside of the vehicle. A search of the vehicle was conducted and as a result approximately 113 grams of methamphetamine and a syringe was found. Murphy was arrested and charged with trafficking any illegal drug and drug paraphernalia.

            Sheriff Harris says “Thanks to the Deputy for being attentive and the assistance of the Albertville Officer and his K-9 we were able to get this individual and drugs off the streets.”
