FORT PAYNE, Ala. — According to Fort Payne Police Chief Randy Bynum: On August 28th, officers were conducting routine patrols on Interstate 59 and observed a gray SUV that had two moving violations.
Officers conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle and were obtaining information of the two males and one female in the vehicle and noticed unusual characteristics of nervousness and sweating profusely from the three occupants. Each individual was questioned separately and none of their stories matched.
