JACKSON COUNTY, AL (WAFF)- It's taken nearly two years, but Jackson County deputies feel that they have enough evidence to move forward with a major spice case.
The bust two years ago dealt with nearly 20 pounds of spice. Back then, they didn't have testers for the new drug for probable cause, so they had to wait until forensics could positively identify the drug before an arrest could be made.
After a traffic stop on Highway 71 in the Flat Rock community, 41-year-old Ralph Dwayne Currie and 27-year-old Selina Johnson Currie, both of Henagar, were charged after a small amount of spice was found in the vehicle.
They now face various drug charges including manufacturing and possession charges.
A search warrant to a Henagar home and a Fackler business uncovered a large amount of spice and packaged spice.
During that time, Ralph was also served warrants for drug charges relating to the find of nearly 20 pounds of spice back in 2011.
