Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up December 22nd

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, December 22, 2017


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




- This past Tuesday, the Jefferson County Sheriff's investigators arrested a Trussville man after seizing heroin, cocaine, prescription opioids, and marijuana from his home. The investigators had been targeting 42-year-old Quincy Lamond Coleman for several weeks as part of an ongoing investigation into the sale of illegal drugs in northeastern parts of Jefferson County. The information gathered on Coleman allowed officers to get search and arrest warrants for three counts of unlawful distribution of a controlled substance. Overall, deputies seized four kilograms of cocaine, three ounces of heroin, oxycodone, hydrocodone, alprazolam, and marijuana (totaling $415,000) along with a shotgun, cash, digital scales and two vehicles thought to have been proceeds from sales of the drugs (a Cadillac Escalade and a BMW 750i). Coleman is being held on a $968,000 and faces additional charges of trafficking cocaine, trafficking heroin, trafficking oxycodone, trafficking hydrocodone, unlawful possession of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of marijuana, and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.



- After her boyfriend refused to let her use his car, a 31-year-old Hoover woman allegedly attacked him with a hatchet and a billiard ball. Hoover police responded to a call at the Four Seasons Condominiums on Lorna Road where they found the suspect standing on the front porch with blood on her hands. The victim had suffered multiple lacerations on his torso, head and legs and said he had been hit in the head and chest with the billiard ball. He was sent to the ICU at UAB Hospital. The suspect was first taken to Hoover City Jail with a $30,000 bail and then transferred to Jefferson County Jail. She faces attempted murder charges.



- A second suspect in the shooting death of former Mountain Brook basketball star Terrell Guy Jr. was arrested this past Tuesday. The U.S. Marshals Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force captured 21-year-old Steven Michael Crawford in Cleveland, Alabama. He attempted to run from the task force when they arrived at a mobile home on Old Walker Road, but was arrested a short while later. Birmingham police and the Marshals had arrested the first suspect in Guy's death, 26-year-old Joseph Curtis Moore, last Friday. Both Crawford and Moore are charged with capital murder.
