HANCEVILLE, Ala. – A Hanceville man was arrested Wednesday, charged with trafficking in methamphetamine, unlawful possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia after members of the Cullman Narcotics Enforcement Team (CNET) and investigators and deputies with the Cullman County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) allegedly seized more than a half-pound of methamphetamine during a search.

Jacolby Conway Pitts, 31, was arrested at his residence after CNET and the CCSO executed a search warrant late Wednesday night. 

According to the CCSO, deputies located approximately 245.6 grams, a little over a half-pound, of methamphetamine, along with needles and other drug paraphernalia.    
“I continue to be impressed with our deputies making proactive drug arrests. Once we learn that someone is a dealer of narcotics in Cullman County, we will do everything in our power to make sure we arrest that suspect,” said Sheriff Matt Gentry. “I would like to thank all the CNET agents, CCSO investigators and deputies who conducted this search warrant.  Anytime law enforcement conducts a search warrant it’s dangerous and I’m glad it was conducted effectively and safely.”

Pitts has made bond.
