Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up May 31st, 2019

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, May 31, 2019


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


- Citizens and authorities were baffled recently when over $1 million in narcotics washed up on the shore over a two-day period in Orange Beach. Investigators say that the first day yielded 21 pounds marijuana and a kilo of cocaine while they discovered an additional 38 kilos of cocaine the following day. Officers believe the drugs came from a vessel because of the watertight packaging.


- Two male suspects who already state face charges in connection with alleged corruption at the Birmingham Water Works Board now have been federally indicted wire fraud charges for allegedly perpetrating a fake invoice scheme against the water works in which they acquired nearly $250,000. The two suspects are Jerry Jones, a former vice president of Birmingham engineering and consulting firm Arcadis, and Mount Vernon Mayor Terry L. Williams. According to authorities, created nine Global Systems International (Williams's company) invoices that falsely states that the company performed work at the Shades Mountain Filter Plant Project as an Arcadis subcontractor. The state charges the two suspect face are in relation to the allegation that the men offered bribes to then-Water Works Board Chairwoman Sherry Lewis in exchange for influencing board actions. While Lewis is still on the board, the charges got Jones fired from his position at Arcadis.

Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up May 24th

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, May 24, 2019


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




- Three men, including one dubbed one of "Walker County's Most Wanted", were arrested in a recent raid carried out by the sheriff's office at the home of Bobby and Cheryl Tucker on Crest Avenue in Parrish. Authorities had executed a search at the residence once before. During the raid (which also included Parrish Police Department, the Jasper Police Department Narcotics Division, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office Aviation Unit, and the Alabama Department of Corrections Prison K9 team), police arrested Robert Deangelo Tucker on charges of trafficking methamphetamine. Robert Tucker had evaded captured during the May 15 raid of the home, and had outstanding warrants for first-degree escape, second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, carrying a concealed weapon, distribution of methamphetamines, distribution of marijuana, and distribution of Suboxone. The two others arrested included Bobby J. Tucker, 64, who was charged with hindering prosecution, possession of methamphetamine, second-degree possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, and Andre Bernard Tucker, 28, who is charged with second-degree possession of marijuana.


- Authorities are currently investigating a 29-year-old Hoover woman who allegedly stole jewelry while pet sitting. Police responded to a call at a local residence from which several pieces of jewelry were taken, even though no burglary seemed to have taken place. The victim accused her pet sitter, Jordan Elizabeth Rodgers. Rodgers had sold jewelry matching the description of those pieces to a store in Birmingham. Once the victim identified the jewelry (worth over $12,000), police obtained warrants against Rodgers for two counts of first-degree receiving stolen property and one count of second-degree receiving stolen property. Rodgers turned herself in to the Jefferson County Jail this past Monday and was released after posting the $30,000 bond.

Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up May 10th

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, May 10, 2019


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


- The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office recently took an alleged "porch pirate" into custody earlier this week. A resident from a Morgan Road subdivision provided deputies with a video of a woman, later identified as 34-year-old Amanda Nicole Ramos, stealing a package from a Bessemer residence. After issuing a lookout bulletin for Ramos's arrest, deputies found her in possession of several items of stolen property as well as drugs, digital scales, drug paraphernalia and the drivers’ licenses of other victims. Saying that stealing made her "feel good", Ramos soon admitted to stealing packages off porches as well as selling drugs. Ramos faces charges of first-degree receiving stolen property, third-degree receiving stolen property, unlawful distribution of a controlled substance, trafficking in stolen identities and possession of drug paraphernalia. She is being held in the Jefferson County jail on bonds totaling $46,000 and could face additional charges.


- A group of federal and state lawmen against a group of 29 people in north Alabama this past week. The suspects were charged with federal indictments ranging from possession of a pipe bomb to possession of machine guns and drug trafficking. The criminal activity involved areas such as the city of Huntsville as well as Madison, Morgan, Jackson and DeKalb counties. Combined, the seizure include more than 45 guns (including pistols and machine guns) and the suspects had more than 60 prior felony convictions and 358 prior arrests.
