WCSO makes 4 drug arrests

Posted

The Walker County Sheriff's Office (WCSO) and several other agencies made several drug arrests and took an escapee from the county's work release program into custody this week in two separate operations.

Clark Allen Stewart, 45, Bryan Carson Stephenson, 45, and Carolyn Lynn Artis Powell, 53, all of Parrish, were arrested Thursday night at a shop/junkyard in the Aldridge community.

Stewart is charged with two counts of distribution of a controlled substance (methamphetamine). Stephenson is charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), second-degree possession of marijuana and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. Powell is charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), second-degree possession of marijuana and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

The search warrant was executed at the shop by WCSO's SWAT, Investigations and Narcotics divisions, the Jasper Police Department (JPD) Narcotics Division and the Alabama Department of Corrections prison canine tracking team.

On Tuesday, Michael Louis Porter, 33, of Jasper, was arrested at his residence, located next door to a daycare center in the Domain Trailer Park.

Porter, who is currently on probation in Walker County District Court, is charged with two counts of unlawful distribution of a controlled substance.

The narcotics divisions of WCSO and JPD investigated complaints of drug activity near the daycare center, which serves children under age 13 and has an average of 11 children in attendance each day. 

The investigation of drug activity going on at other locations in the trailer park will continue. Further arrests are expected of individuals who frequented the residence.

While on scene, deputies also arrested Timothy Aaron Morris, 34, of Jasper, at a different residence. Morris is charged with third-degree escape. According to court records, Morris escaped from Walker County work release on June 1.
