An undercover drug operation led to two arrests and the confiscation of the suspects’ vehicle in Cordova on Thursday.

Daisy Denise Clark, 45, and Gisueppi Miquel Rush, 47, have been charged with unlawful distribution of a controlled substance and are each being held in the Walker County Jail on a $100,000 cash bond.

Cordova Police Chief Nick Smith said the Cordova Police Department recently received information that the two suspects were dealing in prescription medications.

Officer Aaron Moseley was the lead investigator on the case, which also led to the CPD seizing the 2003 Chevy Avalanche that Clark and Rush were driving at the time of their arrest.

Although civil forfeiture is allowed under Alabama law, it has not been a common practice in Cordova.

Smith intends to change that.

“If we catch you selling drugs out of your vehicle, we’re going to do everything we can to file on your property,” Smith said.

Smith said proceeds from any property awarded to the city through civil forfeiture will be placed in a separate account and will be used to support the department’s ongong fight against drugs.
