Alicia man faces drug charges after probation "home visit" | Crime
Sheriff Jody Dotson says an Alicia man was arrested Tuesday after admitting to investigators he traded prescription painkillers for meth.
Tommy Wilson, 34, is charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Sheriff Dotson said deputies and DCC probation officers conducted a home visit after receiving tips from concerned citizens about “suspicious traffic at the residence.”
When investigators searched Wilson’s home, they found a large amount of prescription pain medicine and other prescription drugs, Sheriff Dotson said.
Wilson reportedly told his probation officer he had been “doctor shopping” to get the drugs which he would then sell and trade for meth.
Deputies also found several items used to smoke meth in the house and in a shed, Dotson stated in a news release.
Wilson is currently being held in the Lawrence County Jail awaiting a bond hearing.
At the time of his arrest, Wilson was on probation for second degree battery.
