From The Trussville Tribune staff reports
CULLMAN COUNTY — Law enforcement arrested a Cullman County man for trafficking in heroin and methamphetamine Thursday.
Johnny Wayne Johnson, 34, faces other charges including unlawful possession of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of marijuana in the second degree and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, according to the Cullman County Sheriff’s Office.
“This is our second major drug bust in just as many days,” said Sheriff Matt Gentry. “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.”
Law enforcement said that deputies received several calls from citizens that a subject was on County Road 1435 (Eva Road) knocking on doors asking for clothing. Deputies located Johnson in the Dollar General parking lot on County Road 1435 (Eva Road) near the intersection of US Highway 157. After conducting a search of the vehicle the suspect was driving, deputies located approximately 41 grams of methamphetamine and almost 5 grams of heroin. They also located marijuana and other drug paraphernalia.
“I know I say this a lot,” Gentry said, “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.”
Officials said that Johnson has currently made bond.
