Several arrests have been made following citizen complaints about drug activity at a residence on Hemlock Lane, according to the Walker County Sheriff's Office.
Walker County Sheriff Office K-9 Deputy Jason Hare was working the area on Monday, May 9, when a suspect ran his patrol vehicle off the roadway on Hemlock Lane and then fled towards Cullman County. Hare pursued the suspect over 15 miles into Cullman County until the suspect vehicle became disabled.
The driver, Zachary Neil Aaron, 33, of Jasper, was taken into custody and charged with reckless endangerment, attempting to elude, second-degree possession of marijuana and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
Later on May 9, Narcotics Investigator Jim Browne was working the Hemlock Lane area when he made a traffic stop on a person with multiple warrants. Bryan Mitchell Turner, 43, of Pineywoods, was arrested on warrants for probation revocation and failure to appear on probation revocation.
Browne then encountered another wanted person but the original law enforcement agency would not extradite so the suspect was released. Browne then obtained a search warrant for the residence that he believed was the source of the drug activity and traffic.
The Walker County Sheriff’s Office SWAT, Narcotics, and K-9 Divisions, along with the Department of Corrections K-9 Tracking Unit, executed that search warrant Thursday and assisted the Jasper Police Department Narcotics and SWAT Divisions on three other search warrants.
Among those arrested for one charge each of unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia were Robert David Howard, 59, Tracy Szwajkowski, 50, Lucas Edward Howard, 29, Amanda Cheyanne Carey, 28, and Joey Audie Griffin, 40. All are from Jasper.
