ELBA, Ala. (WDHN) — The Coffee County Sheriff’s Office arrested a man early Tuesday morning on several drug charges.

According to a release from the sheriff’s office, investigators paid a visit to 1717 West St. in Elba around 5 a.m. to serve out a search warrant with the help of multiple law enforcement agencies.

The agencies involved were the 12th Judicial Drug Task Force, the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency and the Elba Police Department.

Upon entering the home, authorities arrested Keith Tyson, 39, and charged him with trafficking synthetic marijuana (colloquially known as “spice”), possessing meth and possessing drug paraphernalia. The arrest was “without incident.”

Authorities also found cash at the home, although the release does not state how much they took during their investigation.

Tyson now waits at the Coffee County Jail for his bond hearing.
