Silverhill PD announces drug arrests in September

Posted

SILVERHILL, Alabama — Several drug arrests were made in the town of Silverhill in September, according to a release issued Wednesday by Silverhill Police Chief Kevin Brock.

“There has been a lot more activity centering around methamphetamine/ICE,” Brock said. “We need to continue to stay educated on the newest drug trends.”

On Sept. 1, Officer Michael Taylor answered a domestic violence call and observed what appeared to be marijuana in a juvenile’s room.

“With consent of the parents, the juvenile assisted the Silverhill Police in conducting an undercover operation to buy from the source,” Brock said.

The buy was made from another white male juvenile that was subsequently arrested for distribution. Another juvenile was present in the vehicle and was in possession of marijuana as well. There are charges pending on all three juveniles.

On Sept. 2, during a routine patrol of a local park, Taylor came upon several subjects “acting suspicious.”

“After a detailed investigation, the subjects were found to be in possession of two small baggies of Ice (meth) and a large bag of syringes,” Brock said.

Brandy Jones, 38, Tracy Byrd, 49, and Constance Leavins, 47, were arrested for possession of approximately 2 grams of methamphetamine/ICE. In addition, Tracy Byrd is on probation with the state of Alabama, Brock said.

There were also several cases for the month dealing with minor charges such as possession of drug paraphernalia.

“We should continue to work together, law enforcement and citizens, to seek out crime,” Brock said. “If you see something, say something. Together we can continue to keep our communities safe.”
