BIRMINGHAM — The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office announced the arrest of two people in connection to a drug investigation in Ensley.
The sheriff’s office’s Narcotics Unit, along with SNET (Sheriff’s Neighborhood Enforcement Team) conducted a search warrant on Tuesday, Oct. 6, 2020, in the 2800 block of Avenue F.
“The search warrant yielded 38 grams of Heroin, 81 grams of Meth, 2 ounces of marijuana and a handgun,” Sgt. Joni Money said in a press release.
While conducting the search, detectives found information leading them to another location in the 5000 block of Winchester Hills Terrace, in Birmingham. During the search of that property, detectives said they found large amounts of prescription drugs that they believe came from a local nursing home where one of the suspects works as a registered nurse. Also found on the scene was a gram of methamphetamine, two ounces of marijuana and $3,000.
Vincent Ferell Davis, 56, and Keisha Danielle Cook, 47 were arrested.
The sheriff’s office said Cook is the suspect that works at the nursing home but they did not release the name or location of the nursing home. Deputies did notify the nursing home and they say they are conducting an internal investigation.
Davis is charged with trafficking heroin and trafficking methamphetamine. Cook is charged with unlawful possession of controlled substances, illegal possession of prescription medications, unlawful possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Both suspects were taken to the Jefferson County Jail.
