May 07, 2022, Chilton County Patrol units stopped a blue Mitsubishi, driven by Trinitee Swanson for a minor traffic violation on County Road 503, near Hwy 31 in Verbena. 

While deputies were speaking with Swanson about the traffic violation, she appeared to be very nervous and shaking. When deputies asked if there were any firearms in the vehicle, passenger Brady Warren spoke up and gave the location of the 9mm handgun. 

After a thorough investigation by deputies and a K9 search that revealed numerous criminal violations Swanson, Warren, and Ferrolder Howell, a third passenger was arrested and taken into custody. 

Trinity Swanson from Bessemer AL (driver) was arrested and charged with three counts of Trafficking of Dangerous Drugs that included Fentanyl, Methamphetamine, and Heroin, one count of Possession of Marijuana 1st degree, one count Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, one violation for Improper Lights, and another for Failure to Register Vehicle.

Brady Warren from Pleasant Grove, AL (passenger) was arrested and charged with three counts of Trafficking of Dangerous Drugs that included Fentanyl, Methamphetamine, and Heroin, one count of Possession of Marijuana 1st degree, one count Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and one count of Drunk/Addict in Possession of a Firearm. 

Ferrolder Howell from Birmingham AL (passenger)  was arrested and charged with three counts of Trafficking of Dangerous Drugs that included Fentanyl, Methamphetamine, and Heroin, one count of Possession of Marijuana 1st degree, and one count Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. 

Drugs and evidence seized one 9mm handgun, approximately six (6) ounces of Methamphetamine, seven (7) grams of Heroin, four (4) grams of suspected Fentanyl, and one hundred seventy-four (174) grams of Marijuana along with two sets of digital scales. 

 

I am proud of the work that our deputies do day in and day out!

These types of arrests are not uncommon for our deputies to make. You can always visit our jail roster located on our app or website to stay up to date on "Chilton County's Who's-Who".

 

We are working together for a safer tomorrow.
