In its second major drug bust in two days, the Cullman County Sheriff’s Office seized 41 grams of methamphetamine and five grams of heroin Thursday, the sheriff said Friday.
Johnny Wayne Johnson, 34, of Cullman, caught the attention of authorities after several neighbors on County Road 1435 said he was knocking on doors asking for clothing, according to Cullman County Sheriff Matt Gentry. Johnson and his car were found by sheriff’s deputies in the parking lot of Dollar General on County Road 1435. When the deputies searched Johnson’s car, they found 41 grams of meth, five grams of heroin, marijuana and other drug paraphernalia.“This is our second major drug bust in just as many days. I believe we as a sheriff’s office are sending a message to drug dealers that if you come to Cullman County to sell drugs in our community you will be arrested,” Gentry said in a statement. “I know I say this a lot, but I am truly grateful for the job all of our deputies do on a daily basis and I know the citizens of Cullman County are grateful as well.”
Johnson, who made bond, was one of six people arrested on drug charges in Cullman County on Wednesday and Thursday.
The five others – three men and two women – were arrested following a traffic stop that yielded 24 grams of methamphetamine, 28 grams of marijuana, prescription pills, suboxone strips, syringes and other paraphernalia.
The suspects in Wednesday’s case were: Christopher Lee Carter, 51, of Decatur; Dustin Michael Edward Jenkins, 29, of Hartselle; Frank Scott Lang, 47, of Hartselle; Kara Beth Griffin, 23, of Trinity and Kimberly Roshell Lambert, 29, of Hartselle. They were charged with possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, unlawful possession of a controlled substance, illegal possession of prescriptions drugs, second-degree possession of marijuana and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
