Following weeks of investigation for several burglaries in the area, officers with the Winston County Sheriff's Office were ultimately led to a residence located in the Curry Community of Walker County. On July 1, with assistance from the Walker County Sheriff's Office and the Walker County District Attorney's Office, a search warrant was executed at a residence off Old Duncan Bridge Road.
Officers discovered multiple items, many of which had been reported stolen. They also discovered numerous firearms, jewelry, tools, and even new clothing. A trafficking amount of methamphetamine (meth) was found, along with components used in the manufacturing process for meth.
Several recovered items were displayed Monday at a joint news conference in Double Springs by Winston County Sheriff Hobby Walker, Investigator Zak Green and Walker County District Attorney, Bill Adair, Jr.
Walker, Green and Adair were in unison praising the constant cooperation of law enforcement officers in both counties to break the burglary operation which has been going on in both Winston and Walker Counties for months.
Green stated that items were still being recovered and the investigation is still ongoing as to the involvement of other individuals.
Arrested and placed in the Winston County jail were James Allen Stewart, 29, Parrish and Jacob Eugene Light, 29, Jasper and charged with multiple drug and theft charges.
