News

DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — The Dothan Police Department and United States Marshals have arrested a man wanted for federal charges, according to a DPD release.

Jimmy Lamar Berry, 33, of Dothan was arrested Thursday after authorities located him at his home on Monroe Street.

The Marshals were after Berry for several federal indictments, including possession of a firearm by a felon, and three counts of possession of illegal narcotics with the intent to distribute.

After his arrest, vice investigators searched his home.

“We found cocaine, marijuana, a stolen handgun, ammunition, some THC vape oil and some other drug paraphernalia,” Said Captain Will Benny.

As such, charges for drug trafficking (cocaine), first-degree possession of marijuana, possession of a firearm by a violent offender, receiving stolen property 4th degree and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia have been added to his case.

According to the DPD, investigators spent months looking into Berry’s “lawless lifestyle.”

“The partnership that the Dothan Police Department has with the U.S. Marshals services is long standing,” Benny said. “It’s a great cooperative effort and bringing these kinds of cases to closure is what we do.”

Berry is now in the Houston Couty Jail with more than $1.5 million in bonds. More federal and state charges are pending.
