Powell Arrested with Four Ponds of Marijuana
Madison County Sheriff Ben Stewart reports that on Monday the 28th day of March 2016 at 12:48 pm Drug Task Force investigator Sgt. Bobby Boatwright made contact with a male riding a bicycle on Bunker Street. The male was identified as Daniel Christopher Powell of Madison and was wearing a backpack that appeared to contain a large bulge. After a short conversation with Powell Sgt. Boatwright began to suspect that Powell was currently involved in criminal activity. Sgt. Boatwright asked Powell what the back pack contained and Powell stated that he believed it contained “stolen property”. Powell attempted to explain that he was only delivering the backpack for someone else. Sgt. Boatwright opened the backpack and discovered two large bricks of Marijuana. Each brick was heavily wrapped in cellophane and scented dryer sheets. Sgt. Boatwright arrested Powell without incident. The Marijuana had a total weight of 4 pounds.
