Five people are facing multiple drug related charges in Etowah County. Etowah County DEU Deputy Commander Phil Sims says earlier this week, agents received a tip of drugs being sold at a home on Stillman Avenue in East Gadsden. When agents arrived at the home, they arrested Jurell Harvey, Dandre Ledford, Tyderrius Heard, Brandon McCurdy and Chatasia McCurdy.
During the search of the home, agents found several bags of synthetic marijuana, also known as ‘spice’, high grade marijuana, two assault rifles, a 12 gauge shotgun, a 9mm handgun, a bullet proof vest, two sets of digital scales and about $1,400 in cash. All five suspects are currently being held in the Etowah County Detention Center.
