Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up June 21st

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, June 21, 2019

Here are a few of the criminal law stories that have recently occurred around the state of Alabama:




- An "attack squirrel" that was seized during a recent methamphetamine bust has become a viral internet sensation within the last week. Sheriff's deputies had discovered the animal in a cage while executing a search warrant at the home of an Athens drug suspect. The authorities arrested 37-year-old Ronnie Reynolds while seizing meth, drug paraphernalia and body armor. Reynolds was charged with possession of controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and loitering in a drug house and was released from the Limestone County jail on $4,000 bail. The squirrel's alleged owner, 35-year-old Mickey Paulk, was not home at the time of the search and is wanted on warrants charging him with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and a firearms possession charge. A tip had been given to authorities that Paulk fed the squirrel meth in order to make it more unhinged. The squirrel was released into the wild as police determined there was no way to safely test it for meth. The animal has since become the topic of memes, social media posts and news stories on Fox, CNN and more.


- A West Mobile couple has been arrested and charged with murder earlier this morning in connection with a burned body. The suspects, 37-year-old Amber Joleen Kuta and 35-year-old Timothy Montgomery Buford, were charged with the murder of 57-year-old Tracy Griffin after the victim's corpse was found on a burn pile in her own backyard. A family member had called the police and asked them to check the property after not hearing from Griffin for several days. According to Mobile Police Department, Kuta was allegedly engaged in a fight with Griffin that turned deadly. Though cause of death is unknown right now, Kuta allegedly called Buford to help her dispose of the body. Buford had also been charged in an unrelated domestic violence incident on Wednesday. The couple was booked in to the Mobile Metro Jail charged with murder and the abuse of a corpse.
