Sheriff Franklin Is It True That You Used Inmates and Maintenance Personnel to Collect Evidence At a Drug Raid?

Sheriff Franklin Is It True That You Used Inmates and Maintenance Personnel to Collect Evidence At a Drug Raid?

 I was told of an incident in the city of Decatur where an elaborate cannabis operation was raided by Sheriff Franklin and the Morgan County Drug Task Force.  The person who told me about this incident said that he and Morgan County Sheriff maintenance personnel, along with Morgan County inmates were tasked by Sheriff Ana Franklin to come to the location of the raid to assist in collecting evidence.  The person told me that upon arriving at the residence of the drug raid they found an elaborate setup for growing and producing cannabis. The person also told me that they were directed by Sheriff Franklin to collect evidence along with the inmates and bring the evidence to her.  The person told me that they went into the residence to collect evidence while Sheriff Franklin remained in the yard and cataloged the evidence.

The contact said that he, maintenance, and inmates gathered lights, equipment, cannabis, and other items used in the set up.  I also understand that an air conditioning unit was connected directly to the power pole.

I have heard story after story such as this one.  I have had both current and previous corrections officers tell me they participate in drug raids.  My question is why would a county sheriff use non-APOST certified resources to collect evidence?  Why would a county sheriff use inmates to collect evidence?

Who is minding the sheriff's office?  It sounds like there is no true leadership, education, or training of correct procedures for the use of inmates, maintenance personnel, corrections officers, and the staff as a whole.

I understand Sheriff Franklin has not been in her office in over two weeks.  Who cares?

Folks! I can't make this stuff up.  If there is ever an investigation into the things that I write about in my blog I will be able to produce the people that have told me these things to tell the appropriate authorities.

Coming Soon:

I have much more to say about the Meth myth and the number of Meth Labs that have REALLY been busted in Morgan County and the untruths that helped Sheriff Franklin in her reelection.
