Daleville police confiscated more than $1,100 in illegal drugs and arrested one person Monday night while serving a search warrant at the Daleville residence of Lakesha Simmons and William Shawn Bryant.

Sgt. Ronnie Williamson said Miss Simmons, 20, of Greentree Apartments, was charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana, second degree, and possession of drug paraphernalia, and was taken to the Dale County Jail in Ozark. Bryant, also 20 years old, was not at home at the time the search warrant was served but police said they are also obtaining warrants for his arrest on the same charges.

During the search by investigators Williamson, Sgt. Bobby Harlin, Sgt. Bill Mansfield and Officer Michael Moore, about 6-3/4 ounces of marijuana, valued at about $800, was found in the bedroom, along with a film canister containing crack cocaine.

While searching the kitchen, Moore found more crack cocaine in the freezer. The cocaine found in the house was valued at about $250. Drug paraphernalia was also found in the house, Williamson said.

$19,000 missing from Tri-Glas

Felony warrants were being obtained Monday for an Enterprise woman in connection with $19,000 in missing funds from a Daleville business, Sgt. Ronnie Williamson said.

Williamson said Bill Ayers of Tri-Glas reported to police Nov. 18 that company checks had been forged. Ayers said about $19,000 was believed to be missing from the company accounts, Williamson said.

Investigation by Williamson and Sgt. Bill Mansfield led to a suspect, Williamson said. Subsequently, a search warrant was served at the home of Stephanie Colbert, 23, of Greentree Apartments, Enterprise, where Williamson said evidence was found indicating Miss Colbert had forged the checks.

Miss Colbert was arrested on two outstanding Dale County warrants for writing bad checks, and was taken to the Daleville Police Department, where Williamson said Miss Colbert confessed to forging checks and taking money from Tri-Glas.

Warrants are also being obtained for Miss Colbert for possession of forged instruments and theft of property.

Stolen checks cashed

A Level Plains man has been charged with two counts of possession of a forged instrument, and possession of drug paraphernalia after a search of his home Nov. 16.

Angelo Simmons, 32, confessed to police that he took checks from the home of Gloria and Billy Cabiniss while visiting them in Tuscaloosa, said Sgt. Ronnie Williamson. Simmons had cashed several thousand dollars worth of the Cabiniss' checks in Daleville, Enterprise and Dothan.

Williamson said Simmons also confessed to taking another checkbook belonging to Angela Munson of Level Plains and cashing those checks in the area also.

Williamson said warrants will be issued for Simmons on possession of a forged instrument for each check written by Simmons from the stolen checkbooks as the checks come through the banks.
