By Staff Reports

SECTION, Ala. — On Yesterday (May 11), after a month long investigation by the Section Police Department into a suspected drug house located on Ryan St in Section, members of the Section Police Department, Jackson County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Unit and Jackson County Sheriffs Deputies executed a search warrant at the residence. During the search Officers/Deputies located methamphetamine, synthetic marijuana, drug paraphernalia, two weapons and approximately 9.5 oz of high-grade marijuana (“loud”).

During this investigation it was discovered that the seized spice and marijuana were being brought into Alabama from out of state. Arrested in connection with this investigation were:

  1. Darren Dimitious Culver age 25 of Section, AL. who was charged with Unlawful Possession of Marijuana 1st degree, Unlawful Possession of Controlled Substances (Synthetic Marijuana) and Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia;
  2. Joseph Kenneth Woods age 20 of Section, AL. who was with Unlawful Possession of Marijuana 1st degree, Unlawful Possession of Controlled Substances (Methamphetamine) and Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia,
  3. Justin Mitchell Whitehead age 20 of Scottsboro, AL. who was charged with Unlawful Possession of Marijuana 2nd degree and Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
  4. Phillip Clinton Ryan age 25 of Section, AL. who was charged with Unlawful Possession of Marijuana 1st degree, Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Loitering in a Drug House;
  5. Justin Ray Jackson age 21 of Rainsville, AL. who was charged with Unlawful Possession of Marijuana 1st degree, Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Loitering in a Drug House;
  6. Zachary Kane Culver 24 of Huntsville, AL. who was charged with Unlawful Possession of Marijuana 1st degree, Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Loitering in a Drug House;
  7. Katie Lynn Ragan age 18 of Fyffe, AL. who was charged with Unlawful Possession of Marijuana 1st degree, Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Loitering in a Drug House.

All defendants were transported to and placed in the Jackson County Jail. Bond had not been set on the listed felony charges at the time of this release.

Possession of illegal controlled substances is both a federal and state crime, with the introduction of medical marijuana being legal, ( and with many companies able to distribute dispensary supplies) within some states within the United States some people might believe that the drugs laws within the US are becoming laxed, however, this is not the case. If you find yourself in being charged with drug possession it important that you know the different laws on possession, it would also be a good idea to find someone like this philadelphia criminal lawyer who might be able to help you with information on and drug possession as help you with your case.

All remain in custody except Whitehead who was released on $600 bond.
