Thanks to citizens’ tips and complaints, the  DeKalb County Drug and Major Crimes Units made 15 arrests and confiscated drugs, cash, paraphernalia, and stolen merchandise from Feb 21-28.

Agents seized 390 grams of methamphetamine, 178 grams of Kratom, 2 grams of marijuana, 3 grams of cocaine, a stolen motorcycle, 19 unprescribed Xanax pills and a mobile meth lab.

During the week of arrests, Drug Task Force agents attempted to stop a vehicle that ran a stop sign. The vehicle led deputies on a 20 minute chase before wrecking in Bryant, AL. Two occupants were arrested while one fled.

That suspect, Ryan Hardeman, 24 of Higdon, is facing several charges. If you know his whereabouts, contact the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office at (256)845-3801 or send a tip to info@dekalbcountysheriff.org. Your identity will be kept confidential. 

DeKalb County Sheriff Nick Welden said of the arrests, “I commend these agents on their hard work this past week. There is significantly less poison on our streets thanks to their efforts.

“It makes a big difference for the safety of our citizens to have a motivated and proactive team tackling our drug problem. These guys are good at what they do, and most importantly, they love what they do,” he said.

“Even those that aren’t immediately caught will be more apprehensive about selling this poison in DeKalb County. Families are sick of losing their loved ones to drug abuse, and we will continue to do our part to fight it,” the Sheriff said.
