A man remains in jail at the Cullman County Detention Center after being arrested and charged with first-degree unlawful manufacturing of a controlled substance.

Dannie Oneal Dye, 61, was taken into custody by Cullman Narcotics Enforcement Team agents Jan. 4 after a search warrant had been served at his residence.

According to an officer with CNET, the agency received several complaints from neighbors of illegal activity going on at Dye’s residence. Upon arrival at his home, agents found two trash bags around the shed area that contained Ziploc bags, batteries, Coleman fuel and other components used to make methamphetamine. Inside, several other precursor items were found, including a coffee filter that tested positive for the drug and a funnel with white residue.

Dye’s bond is set at $1 million.

In another incident, agents also searched the home of Nelda Diane Crocker, 57 recently. While there, they found three hydrocodone hidden inside of a pocketbook. Hydrocodone and methadone pills were also found hidden inside two tissue boxes. Cocker turned herself into authorities Friday, where she was charged with second-degree trafficking. She is no longer in jail.

Police looking for leads in car burglaries

Cullman police have a possible suspect in the investigation of 11 car burglaries that occurred Monday.

According to Cullman Police Department Assistant Chief Craig Green, nine of the break-ins occurred at Veigl Village Apartments on Kaite Lane SW. The other two occurred at Lee Ave. and on 5th Street SW. Green believes all of them occurred between the hours of midnight and 5 a.m.

“There was no forced entry used,” Green said. “So from what we’ve gathered, none of the vehicles were locked when the break-ins occurred.”

Green said approximately $1,100 worth of merchandise was taken from the vehicles. Among the items were CDs, Ipods, money, cigarettes, car stereos, and Costa Del Mar sunglasses.

He encourages anyone who may have seen the suspicious activity taking place or may have any information, to contact the police department at 734-1434.
