Two are in jail after Fort Payne police officers went to a house to investigate drug activity and found a bag of methamphetamine and other paraphernalia.
Police Chief Randy Bynum said Friday, Feb. 19, around 7:20 p.m., officers and Drug Task Force agents went to the home of Sonya Marie Gonzalez to investigate possible drug activity.
Bynum said after speaking with Gonzalez, officers determined there was marijuana in the residence. Agents asked her if they could search the residence, to which she replied only with a search warrant. Bynum said after they obtained the warrant and searched her home, they found more drug paraphernalia.
Bynum said officers also found a bag of white, crystal-like substance outside the back door. The substance field-tested positive for meth, or “ICE.”
Bynum said Gonzalez and Anthony Brown, who was also present, were arrested after they denied any knowledge of the drugs found outside the residence.
They were charged with possession of controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana.
Bynum said there were two young children at the residence; officers contacted DHR on their behalf.
Gonzalez and Brown are being held, awaiting bond.
