The two males are identified as Kenneth Earl Fowler, 31, of Moody, and Ronald Brandon Anderson, of Birmingham.
The woman arrested Monday is Jennifer Leigh Brooks, 25, of Odenville. Anderson and Brooks have been released on bond but Fowler remains in the St. Clair County Jail.
St. Clair County Deputy Sheriff James Sargent said he recognized Fowler driving a vehicle last week and knew he had an outstanding grand jury indictment for a controlled substance and pulled him over. Anderson was a passenger in the vehicle.
The arrest took place at 3 p.m., Oct. 14, near the Moody/Leeds city limits on A.E. Moore Road right off Markeeta Spur Road.
“I had arrested Fowler before due to driving while his license were suspended,” Sargent said.
Deputies recovered one large pill bottle that had a mixture of 336 Oxycontin and another type drug from the vehicle, as well as three boxes of Sudafed, 2 handguns —including a 9mm highpoint pistol — different quantities of controlled substance pills —including Lortab and Xanax — and cell phone batteries,
There was a powdery substance believed to have been methamphetamines, in addition to a laptop computer and several cameras. Sargent said they do not know what is on the computer or the cameras yet.
Deputies also found straws and glass tubes used to help get the drug into their system.
Sargent was still processing all that was found and had yet to determine the street value of everything confiscated.
“It’s hard to tell because they try to sell these pills individually,” Sargent said. “Sometimes, these pills sell for $10 to $20 a pill. It varies with the different milligrams it may be. All of this together could be in the thousands of dollars.”
The St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department, the Moody Police Department and the Leeds K-9 dog all assisted in the arrest.
St. Clair County Sheriff Terry Surles said anytime his department can take this amount of pills and narcotics off the streets, it is a plus.
“It does me good to know my officers are out there and attentive,” Surles said. “They are paying attention and know what to look for. They are doing what they’re supposed to be doing.
“Citizens of this county should be proud we have officers of this caliber doing their jobs.”
