Monday night, June 20, 9-1-1 received a call from a residence on County Road 48 located just south of Haleyville off Highway 195. The caller said someone was waving a rifle and shouting. Deputies were dispatched to the scene, but the gun-wielding man left before they could arrive. With a description of the vehicle, Haleyville police officers drove in the direction of the incident as a backup and stopped the vehicle at the Chevon in Haleyville just after midnight Tuesday morning. When the officers looked inside they could clearly see a rifle in the back seat. Having probably cause, a search of the vehicle was made and both illegal drugs and guns were found.
The two occupants were arrested with multiple charges. Brandon Lee Momon, 35, and Paula Gail Walters, 41, both of Waco, Georgia, are being been held in the Winston County jail with charges of possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, drug trafficking and possession of drug paraphernalia.
In addition to the drugs, the couple also had two guns in the car and one on the female, a loaded 5 shot derringer. The other two were a 32 cal automatic handgun and a 9mm handgun. All were loaded. The rifle was a 308 high power rifle with no serial number and appeared to be custom made. There were four crack pipes, a set of digital scales, 2 butane lighters and a box of 308 shells.
The drugs are being sent to a lab to confirm it is meth in ice form and the guns will be checked by the Alabama Tobacco and Firearms, ATF.
Haleyville police officers, SGT Eddie Collins, and Heath Lewis were the arresting officers.
