After the stop was made Officer Campbell could detect things just were not right. Acting search Officer Campbell found evidence of drugs. Officer Campbell confiscated Meth, Meth Oil, controlled substance ( pills ), scales and a large amount of cash. Also recovered were two firearms and cell phones.
In the southbound BMW with Georgia license plates were three persons, one being a female. The assistance of Webb Police Officer Rebecca Powers was called in order for a female officer to search the female.
The trio were taken into custody. The BMW was seized. Some of the drugs was taken from the breather of the car.
A search warrant is being obtained from Henry County Court for further search of the vehicle.
The trio were taken to Headland Police and will be transported to Henry County Jail and booked on multiple criminal drug offenses. The officers are continuing their investigation, drug field testing and evidence will be sent to the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences.
Headland Police Chief Mark Jones praised Officer Campbell for his alertness and efforts to keep the streets safe. Chief Jones also thanked Webb Police and Officer Powers for her assistance since one of the defendants was a female.
Notice the two firearms. If you were an officer and made a traffic stop and the suspects were to present those two handguns towards you in an aggressive manner, what would you do?
Those two handguns shoot BB’s. To look at them you think they are real. These type weapons are what officers are faced with to make a decision in seconds that others will takes hours, days and months to question the officers actions he or she had to make in seconds.
