CHEROKEE COUNTY, AL - Two Cherokee County residents are behind bars today after sheriff’s deputies arrested them for drug trafficking.

Deputies with the Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigative Division followed up on some tips from citizens concerned about possible drug activity happening at a campground in Leesburg.

Investigators Matt Peek and Shawn Rogers observed the suspects’ vehicle and identified the two occupants as 48 year old James William Allred of Leesburg and 44 year old Willie Guy Rines of Vines. Investigators found a large amount of crystal meth, along with numerous small baggies pre-packaged for re-sale, several items of drug paraphernalia, and a large amount of cash in their possession. Allred and Rines are charged with trafficking illegal drugs and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

They were taken to the Cherokee County Detention Center and are being held pending a bond hearing.

Sheriff Jeff Shaver says Leesburg officer Chris Vaughn played a key role in the investigation.
