FORT PAYNE, Ala. — On Sunday, DeKalb County Drug Task Force Agents responded to assist the National Park Service after illegal drugs were found in a vehicle after a stop near Alabama Highway 35.

“Our guys are always happy to help our friends at the National Park Service,” Sheriff Nick Welden said. “Great job to them and our guys for responding and assisting.”

At approximately 6 p.m., a National Park Service Officer conducted a stop of a suspicious vehicle that was occupied by four subjects. During the stop, consent was granted and a search was conducted on the vehicle. More than 121 Ecstasy pills (MDMD), Marijuana, a handgun, digital scales and an undisclosed amount of U.S. currency were found.

Deonquavious De’Shawn Williams, 24, of Cedartown, Ga, was arrested and charged with Unlawful Possession of Controlled Substance, Unlawful Possession of Marijuana  2nd, and Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.  

This case is still ongoing and further charges could be pending.  

“These narcotics could have been distributed to our young people in this county,” Welden said. “MDMA is a dangerous drug that is easy to overdose on. God bless.”
