Traffic Stop Leads to Arrest
A routine traffic stop in Attalla not only produces an overheated vehicle but it also exposes a driver with a pistol and drugs in his car. The Etowah County Drug Enforcement Unit says 28-year-old Christopher Haney of Albertville was arrested and charged with Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance, Second Degree Possession of Marijuana, and carrying a concealed weapon. Haney did not have a valid pistol permit to carry a concealed weapon. During the car search the deputy recovered methamphetamine, a small amount of marijuana, and drug paraphernalia. Haney is being held in the Etowah County Detention Center on a $45-hundred bond.
