A Parrish man was arrested and large quantities of methamphetamine and marijuana were confiscated during an operation carried out by the Walker County Sheriff’s Office Multijurisdictional Drug Task Force on Friday.

Robert Deangelo Tucker, 27, of Parrish, is charged with trafficking methamphetamine and felony first-degree possession of marijuana. 

Investigators seized approximately 45 grams of methamphetamine packaged for sale, and approximately 38 grams of marijuana in 26 plastic bags packaged for sale.

Tucker was released on bond on March 1 after being arrested by the Jasper Police Department for possessing approximately 150 grams of marijuana. Tucker appeared in court on Monday and had a bond set of $100,000 cash. 

According to a press release from the Walker County Sheriff’s Office, the department will request that District Attorney Bill Adair file a motion to revoke Tucker’s previous bond.

A search warrant was executed Friday evening at 222 Crest Ave in Parrish by the Drug Task Force, SWAT and the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office Aviation Unit.

The task force included officers from the sheriff’s office, as well as Parrish, Jasper, Oakman, Sumiton, Carbon Hill, Cordova and Dora police departments.  

“This location is one where we have received repeated complaints of drug activity,” Sheriff Nick Smith said in the release. “The Sheriff’s Office has also conducted numerous enforcement operations there over time and we will continue to stay on top of it until they get the message. If any homeowners continue to allow their residence to be used as a site for drug trafficking, we will give them proper notice and if the activity continues, utilize civil forfeiture laws to seize their property.”

Dora PD K9 Sgt. Ronnie Phillips and the Aviation Unit of the Jefferson Co Sheriff’s Office were instrumental in making the arrest.
