Sheriff Jimmy Harris reports the arrest of three individuals after investigators and DeKalb County Drug Task Force agents executed a search warrant in Whiton. During the search officers found drug paraphernalia, methamphetamine, and two methamphetamine labs.
Bobby Loyd Sanders, 55, of Geraldine, Regina Gwen Wiggins, 49, of Guntersville, and Travis Matthew Newman, 28, of Guntersville were all arrested and charges with unlawful possession of controlled substance, unlawful manufacturing of controlled substance, and felony possession of drug paraphernalia. All were transported to the DeKalb County Detention Center where they await bonds. Wiggins also had active warrants from DeKalb County for previous drug charges.
Sherriff Harris states “We have been working the Whiton area due to an increase in burglaries. These contacts produced the information that got these people arrested. We are still looking for any suspicious persons or activity so we appreciate all the help we get from the public.”
