Who's on first?

We have been harping for the past four years that something just isn't right with the Morgan County Sheriff's Office.  We began by speaking to past and present employees to get an inside knowledge of any nefarious active going on behind the scenes.  We were chugging along slowly until we heard about the Title Marts.  The time frame was the April 2015.  The first we heard was that Steven Ziaja was part owner of the dealership.  We heard claims that Ziaja was walking around with thousands of dollars in his wallet and showing it off; that he was operating at the Priceville Title Mart and Hartselle Title Marts.

We observed Ziaja working at the Title Marts when he should have been performing duties at his regular job.  We sent people into the Title Marts to snoop around and low and behold who do we see but Sheriff Ana Franklin's daughter Alyssa.

Then we discover that Ziaja was selling cars under the alias of Ricky Dukes.  How do we know that?  We sent a message to Dukes questioning vehicles he advertised.  If our contact showed interested in the vehicle we were referred to Mr. Masterson or Greg Steenson at the Priceville Title Mart.  It was and is very interesting that Ziaja used an alias to sell cars.  We decided that the reason was that he did not want his agency to know what he was involved in.

On one occasion we saw Sheriff Ana Franklin at the Priceville Title Mart riding around with Ziaja on an ATV or walking around like she owned the place. 

We eventually believed that we had enough information to prove that Ziaja and possibly Ana Franklin and Alyssa Franklin were deeply involved in the operation.  We are actually amazed at how deeply involved the Franklin's were in the operation.

Ziaja continued to find ways of making money off of the Title Marts.  He sold fictitious cars to the Title Marts, he and Blake Robinson opened a detail shop making over $38,000.00 off of Mr. Jeffreys when both men should have been working that law enforcement day jobs.  Ziaja hid his activities from his superiors while Robinson's boss Sheriff Ana Franklin knew exactly where he was. 

Then came all of the investments in the PONZI scheme.  Greg Steenson got the most blame for that activity.  Don't believe for one minute we are condoning anything that Steenson did in this matter but it is obvious that he did not mastermind this plan alone.  He had help in the form of Ana Franklin, Steven Ziaja, Blake Robinson, and Alyssa Franklin.  Why is that so obvious you ask?  Well! If you look at the investors in the PONZI scheme the majority are law enforcement friends of Franklin and Ziaja, employees of Sheriff Franklin such as Blake Robinson and Bones Wilson, and family of Sheriff Ana Franklin, and coworkers of Steven Ziaja.

Franklin, Blake, Bones, and Ziaja were raking in the money.  Sheriff Franklin had her family working which was a good thing for her.  It meant more of the sheriff's office money went to her. Which makes us wonder where Franklin's oldest daughter obtained a $100,000.00 to jumpstart their business.  We are talking about a  young family that had to have a co-signer to purchase a house.  The co-signer interestingly enough was Steven Ziaja.  After the purchase of the house came approximately $65,000.00 dollars in upgrades to the house, a huge commercial BBQ grill, and big fancy cars.  The company may be prospering now but the question is where did the initial money come from? Not family for sure.

Sheriff Ana Franklin didn't stop there.  Franklin included her staff, contract labor, and inmates into her corrupt activities.  Franklin had these people believing everything she said.  She claims to have everything under control.  Maybe she does and maybe she doesn't.  Time will tell.  We have been saying for years that the sheriff is going to jail.  We stand firm on our predictions.  It is unfortunate that those who trusted Sheriff Franklin have placed their freedom in jeopardy as well.

  1. So, if Barney does not get arrested for his involvement, will he represent the Sheriff? If he is her criminal defense attorney can she continue to pay him with Sheriff Office funds? Since Barney took place in the planning of some of these crimes can he represent Ana? If he represents Ana then I am sure Ana will have to throw the others under the bus to try and minimize her exposure. So, who then represents the other Sheriff Office employees who get arrested? Who pays for their criminal defense lawyers? Sounds like things may have to move pretty fast for a lot of reasons now. Okay, same questions but let us say Barney is also being arrested for his involvement. This is all going to get very interesting.
    Oh........never mind Ana is immune. All this will go away. All this hard work and sacrifice by so many who stood up against Ana and her followers wasted all their time and effort. Oh wait a minute I am not private or the other commenters who were so eager to try to spin. I know the truth. The time is finally here where Ana and those who came in and assisted her will be held accountable and her spin and claims of immunity crap will not fly. Her running over anyone and everyone to fulfill her greedy corruption and various crimes is over. The Sheriffs Office and people of Morgan County can recover from all this finally.

  2. Hey Blake if your planning a great escape you may get further on your jet ski. It would make the movie about all this that is in the works better.

    2. Well, absolutely. He's been preoccupied with the FBI. That's why he's been unavailable. I'm sure A.) Whistleblower has to delete his comments or B.) The FBI is fighting him in the front steps of the courthouse and most likely into a few offices. Let me send my appreciation out to the FBI and all the hard working Morgan County deputies. Additionally, those who have struggled, put up with crap, and still stayed there through it all. I won't call your names out but you know who you are. Thank you for your patience, time, effort, and above all honor.

  4. A great deal of silence on the blog. The ones who were behind Ana are all running scared now. Guess they figured out real quick they were not untouchable. Guess we have to wait for Decatur Daily or AL.com and other media to report all this after their imminent arrest. Seems the public and everyone else will see what is really happening and the fact Ana and gang will absolutely be held accountable. Next couple of weeks seem to be very important to the future of Morgan County. Ana seems to be believing she will be able to run for Sheriff even still. Only one word could explain this at this point. Delusional!

  6. Lots more to come. The FBI was there but the Sheriffs Office is not the only place. There is reason for them all to hide. How will it all work out? Who will realize it’s over and who will go out kicking and screaming like a spoiled brat who won’t take responsibility for their actions.

  10. She should be investigated as we would. Arrested and a trial as a person not a sheriff. Found guilty on many counts and serve the required time for such offensives.
