Citizen tip leads to drug arrest
By Amy Bice
Another concerned citizen's tip has led to a drug arrest in Kellyton. Coosa County Investigator Chris Vinson said a search warrant was served at a home in Hillside Trailer Park that led to the arrest of Miranda Jane Hutchins Sunday night.
Hutchins, 30, is charged with possession of the controlled substance crack cocaine, possession of marijuana in the second degree and possession of drug paraphernalia.
"The search produced 14.6 grams of crack cocaine with a street value of $1,500, a small amount of marijuana valued at $20 and drug paraphernalia," Vinson said.
Coosa County law enforcement is pleased citizens are helping clean up the streets.
"Our citizens are our eyes and ears. We can't be everywhere all the time," said Coosa County Sheriff Ricky L. Owens. "But our citizens can monitor the activity in the communities where they live. When they see something out of the ordinary, we want to know," he said.
According to Vinson, Hutchins was transported to the county jail and placed under $75,000 bond.
Gonna be a long Christmas for Miranda. I'm covering you girl....HANG IN THERE!!!
