An Enterprise man was arrested on Thursday, June 27, after a license check performed by Daleville police led to the seizure of drugs and a weapon.
According to Police Chief Allen Medley, the Daleville Police Department set up a license checkpoint on June 27 at approximately 3 p.m. at Old Highway 134 and Tank Hill Road.
Medley said a 2006 Mazda entered the checkpoint, and after investigation, officers recovered “a substantial amount” of methamphetamine, marijuana, scales and a handgun.
David Christopher Green, 33, was arrested and charged with possession with the intent to distribute, second-degree possession of marijuana and carrying a concealed weapon without a permit. He is currently being held at the Dale County Jail awaiting a bond.
Medley thanked his officers for their hard work in this case.
“These guys are doing a fantastic job,” he said, stating he appreciates the leadership of investigators Noah Suiter and Thomas Mason. “They’re working really well with our younger officers. I couldn’t be prouder of seeing these guys teaching a lot of these young guys how to go about looking for this stuff and knowing what to look for.”
He also reminded citizens and visitors to Daleville that the city has a zero-tolerance policy on drugs. He also said the Daleville Police Deparment’s Narcotics Division is growing stronger and the department works closely with other municipal police deparments and the Dale County Sheriff’s Office.
“Since I’ve taken over, we have really started working on narcotics in the City of Daleville, surrounding cities and Dale County,” Medley said. “We work diligently with other agencies to stop the flow of narcotics through our county and our state.”
