FORT PAYNE, Ala. Last week, two were arrested on drug trafficking charges and more arrests are possible. Over a kilo of methamphetamine was discovered.
On Wednesday, December 2, ALEA Region F Task Force, along with DeKalb County Drug Unit, DeKalb County SRT and Homeland Security intercepted a package being delivered through the mail to a residence on County Road 337 in Geraldine. A KILO of methamphetamine was found inside the package. Rafael Osorio-Ramos (20 of Albertville) was arrested and charged with Trafficking in Methamphetamine. Osorio-Ramos was booked in the DeKalb County Jail. Investigation is ongoing and more arrests are possible.
On Thursday, December 3, DeKalb County Deputies conducted a traffic stop near Al Hwy 68 and County Road 48 in Collinsville. During the search of the vehicle, deputies found nearly 60 grams of methamphetamine, along with marijuana and assorted drug paraphernalia. John Wesley Crow (46 of Collinsville) was charged with Trafficking in any Illegal Drug, Carrying Concealed Weapon, Unlawful Possession of Marijuana 2nd Degree and Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
DeKalb County Sheriff Nick Welden said of the incident: "This is a prime example of how far people will go to get drugs into our communities. But this is also reassuring to the law-abiding citizens of our county on how far our Drug Task Force agents go to stop this poison to getting into the hands of our youth."
"God Bless!" Concluded Sheriff Welden.
