A Jasper man is facing multiple drug charges, including selling marijuana, after police executed a search warrant Monday night at his home.

Charles Caney Allison Jr., 48, was arrested at his home on McCollum Road by members of the Walker County Narcotics Enforcement Team at approximately 11 p.m. Monday. Allison was charged with unlawful distribution of a controlled substance (marijuana), first-degree unlawful possession of marijuana and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

NET officer Adam Hadder said police received a search warrant for Allison’s home after officers had made a controlled buy. He said police were able to purchase a half-pound of marijuana from Allison Monday night. Inside the home, Hadder said police found more marijuana, methamphetamine and several items of paraphernalia.

“This was an upper-level marijuana dealer,” Hadder said. “He mentioned during the buy that he was going next week to get more marijuana.”

Hadder said Allison has a pending case in Texas where he was caught with more than 160 pounds of marijuana.

“This will be his second felony in less than a year,” he said. “He was going and getting this stuff and bringing it back here to sell. He was already caught once with a lot of marijuana, and we think we were able to arrest him before he could go back and get that much more.”

Allison’s 48-year-old wife, Anna Louisa Allison, was also arrested Monday night and charged with first-degree unlawful possession of marijuana and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. Hadder said she also had a felony warrant in Walker County for failure to appear on theft of property charges.

Both are currently in the Walker County Jail awaiting a bond hearing.
