“Agents had been conducting an investigation over a period of several months on Charles Todd involving illegal distribution of narcotics,” Casey said. “The agents obtained warrants for Todd’s arrest along with a search warrant for the area commonly known as ‘The Flats’.”

Casey said “The Flats” refers to an area near the intersection o Sowell Road and Liles Boulevard.

Casey said the search conducted by the agents resulted in the seizure of a variety of illegal substances.

“Agents found and seized a large amount of crack/cocaine, powder cocaine, several Ecstasy tables and approximately three-fourths of a pound of marijuana,” Casey said. “Due to the items found Todd was charged with several offenses.”

Casey said the seizure of drugs occurred approximately one-eighth of a mile from Brewton Middle School which could bring additional charges.
