Quick action by two police departments Monday morning has put a Brewton woman and a Century, Fla., woman behind bars with both facing a variety of drug charges.
Carol Brown, 46, of Brewton and Susanette Johnson, 47, of Century, Fla., were arrested after officers with the Flomaton Police Department and the Brewton Narcotics Division brought an end to an investigation into suspicious drug activity.
“At about 10:30 a.m., Flomaton Police Chief Geoff McGraw made a traffic stop on a vehicle on U.S. 29 at the Kangaroo Gas Station in Flomaton,” Davis said. “The 2006 Ford van stopped belonged to the Lakeview Center, Inc., in Pensacola and was being driven by Carol Brown. She is an employee at Lakeview Center in Century, Fla.”
During the traffic stop, McGraw was able to uncover information that indicated Johnson was brought to Flomaton for the purpose of selling drugs, Davis said.
” It appears that Brown had picked up Johnson Century and took her to Flomaton to sell Lortabs,” Davis aid. “Once in Flomaton, Johnson met with a subject and sold an undisclosed amount of Lortabs. After the sale was complete, Johnson and Brown then headed back to Century.”
During the traffic stop, officers found Johnson in possession of additional Lortabs and placed under arrest for unlawful distribution of a controlled substance (Lortab) and two counts of unlawful possession of a controlled substance (Lortab).
Brown was arrested and charged with criminal conspiracy to commit a controlled substance
crime (distribution).
Both Johnson and Brown were transported to the Escambia County Detention Center where they were booked on the charges against them. No information on bond for either suspect was available Monday evening.
