Two Hanceville residents were arrested after law enforcement allegedly found 60 grams of methampheatmine under and in their mobile home early Friday morning.
Brittney Autumn Case, 27, and Stoney R. Vincent, 37, both of Hanceville, were arrested for unlawful manufacturing of a controlled substance and trafficking of illegal drugs on Friday, at 160 County Road 528 in Hanceville. Cullman County Sheriff Mike Rainey said the effort from multiple law enforcement units were involved in making the arrests after obtaining a search warrant.
“When the officers arrived on the long driveway, they observed Mr. Vincent standing on the front porch of the residence and then turning and running inside,” Rainey said. “The officers also came in from the back of the home and located Mrs. Case hiding underneath the mobile home with a small blue box that contained 50 grams of methampheatmine.”
Rainey said the arrests were made without incident. Inside the home, agents also located 10 grams of methampheatmine in numerous plastic baggies, and several items connected to making meth including: smoking devices, a coffee grinder with pseudoephedrine residue in it, and a funnel. They also recovered $1,315 in cash and $17 in coins.
“After receiving numerous complaints from the neighborhood and the community about possible illegal activities going on at this residence, CNET was able to get enough probable cause to obtain a search warrant,” Rainey said. “I can’t say it enough, without the public’s cooperation and information, we couldn’t do this. Also, thanks to all those who were involved in the arrests and for putting their lives on the line everyday to do this job. We can’t thank you enough.”
The Cullman Narcotics Enforcement Team (CNET), Cullman city police department’s tactical team, Cullman air support, and the Cullman County Sheriff’s office response team were all involved in the arrests.
Case and Vincent are each being held on a $1 million bond at the Cullman County Detention Center.
