Traffic Stop Leads to Arrests and 2,500 Fentanyl Pills Seized in Franklin County

RUSSELLVILLE, Ala. — The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office has reported the arrest of four individuals and the seizure of 2,500 fentanyl pills in two separate drug busts conducted this week.

According to the FCSO, these operations were carried out in collaboration with the Russellville Police Department.

The first operation took place on Thursday when a deputy and the Russellville police conducted a traffic stop on Jackson Avenue in Russellville.

Upon searching the vehicle, methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia were discovered, leading to the arrest of both occupants, Joel Davis and Angel Morgan, by the sheriff’s office.

During Morgan’s arrest, officers found approximately 1,000 fentanyl pills in her possession. Morgan is now facing charges of drug trafficking, possession of drug paraphernalia, as well as unrelated warrants for community corrections violations.

Davis, on the other hand, is charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The second set of arrests occurred on Friday following a months-long investigation by the FCSO and RPD. After a traffic stop, investigators apprehended Ayanna McCullough and Davontea Goodloe.

Both individuals have been charged with drug trafficking as they were found in possession of around 1,500 fentanyl pills and $4,500 in cash.

The FCSO has estimated the street value of the seized pills from this week’s operations to be over $20,000.
