SHERIFF’S DEPUTIES SEIZE 2 POUNDS OF METH IN BIRMINGHAM
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – Sheriff’s officials in the Birmingham area confiscated more than two pounds of methamphetamine they say has a street value of nearly $100,000.
Authorities say the the seizure — and the arrest of a Georgia man — is the result of an ongoing investigation of meth trafficking.
Jefferson County sheriff’s officials say detectives had learned a significant amount of meth would be delivered to a location in northern Jefferson County from an unknown location in Georgia.
Authorities said a description of the vehicle was given to patrol deputies, who spotted the car and stopped it near Warrior. A vehicle search uncovered the drugs.
Authorities say 27-year-old Christopher Anthony Murphy of Stone Mountain, Georgia, was charged with trafficking methamphetamine. Jail records do not list an attorney who could be contacted for comment.
