A Sand Mountain man has been charged with trafficking in meth and 2 other people were arrested on other charges following a joint operation involving several law enforcement agencies late last week. 

Assistant chief sheriff's deputy Steve Guthrie said agents with the Marshall County Drug Enforcement Unit, SBI’s Alabama Drug Enforcement Task Force, FBI Safe Streets Task Force and Albertville Police executed a search warrant on a residence on Solitude Avenue in Albertville.

"Close to half a pound of crystal meth was recovered at the time of the search," Guthrie said. "Due to the amount of drugs this case it will be referred to the federal system for further prosecution."

Arrested were:

  • Shannon Todd Cook, charged with trafficking in meth, possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting arrest, obstructing a governmental operation and tampering with physical evidence. His bond was set at $1 million.
  • Rodney Harold Cook, charged with resisting arrest and obstructing governmental operations. His bond was set at $1,000.
  • Crystal Brooke Johnson, charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Her bond was set at $5,000.
