Five from Morgan County and one from Winston County were placed under arrest following a drug bust this past week. 

Morgan County Sheriff Drug Enforcement Unit agents attached to the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency Drug Enforcement Task Force and Morgan County Sheriff’s Office patrol deputies executed a search warrant on a residence in the 1400 block of Parker Road in Hartselle March 12.  

Upon arrival, agents and deputies reportedly observed two individuals fleeing from a shop at the residence. The individuals were apprehended by deputies after a brief foot pursuit.  

During the search, agents reported recovering approximately 2 ounces of methamphetamine, 5 ounces of marijuana, numerous drug paraphernalia items and numerous firearms.  

Of those firearms, one was reported stolen by a local police agency.
