The Bear Creek Police Department arrested Timothy Craig Brimer, age 48 of Bear Creek, May 15. He was arrested with seventeen different charges, including four felonies.
The Bear Creek Police Department received a tip Tuesday, May 13, 2014, that there was drug activity at the Brimer residence on Yancey Bend Road. When police arrived, Brimer was not home, but police found evidence of a recent methamphetamine lab and all of the components for making meth. While police were searching the property, Brimer pulled into the driveway. However, when he saw police he left again trying to evade officers. Brimer wrecked just up the road from his residence, near the intersection of Yancey Bend Road and Phillips Road. He then fled into the woods on foot.
The Bear Creek Police Department, with assistance from the Haleyville Police Department and Marion County Sheriff's Department, arrested Brimer at his home two days later. Brimer remains in the Marion County Jail with a $21,500 bond. He has been charged with the following offenses.
