GENEVA COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — A routine traffic stop in eastern Geneva County led to a large drug bust.

K9 officer Dazey alerted authorities of narcotics.

Shortly after, deputies and police recovered approximately 13 grams of meth along with drug paraphernalia under the front seat.

Driver Danny Stevens and his passenger, Susan Williamson, were arrested.

“Every county, every state, everyone is dealing with a drug issue; methamphetamine, and now fentanyl, heroin, and we’re starting to see that it’s a huge, huge issue for our area as well as the rest of the areas.”,” Sheriff Tony Helms said.

Both Stevens and Williams are charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

They’re being held at the Geneva County Jail.
