FORT PAYNE, Ala. — Yesterday, (August 22) the DeKalb County Sheriff's Office held a press conference on a drug bust, carried out in conjunction with the Marshall County Drug Task Force, the Alabama Bureau of Investigation's Safe Street Task Force, and the Boaz Police Department.
Pedro Pasqual Andres, Pedro G Andres, and Michael Pedro Andres were arrested in possession of, "a pound and a quarter of methamphetamine, cocaine, and marijuana," two handguns, and approximately $10,000 in cash.
"We've got a case we've been working on, along with the Marshall County Sheriff's Office, their Task Force, the Safe Streets (Alabama Bureau of Investigation) Task Force, our Task Force, and the Boaz PD," said DeKalb County Sheriff Jimmy Harris.
"This has turned out to be a really good case, and it's continuing. It's early in this case, so I'm sure there is going to be a lot more that happens, when we continue working this. I can't say enough about everybody working together like we have on this. It went into two different counties; probably three," explained Harris.
"This has been about a six month investigation, like the Sheriff said, there have been several law enforcement agencies involved. Along with the illegal drugs we got, their was about $10,000 in cash that was also seized. They probably disrupted the drug trade in three or four different counties just with this one bust. I appreciate all them working together and staying after it. They did a good job," stated Chief Deputy Michael Edmondson.
