Written by Staff

On the 21st day of March 2012 law enforcement served a
search warrant at Ronnie Bettis' residence located at 2065
9th St. in Florala Al.
The search warrant stemmed from a three month
investigation, conducted in a joint effort by the Drug Task
Force and Alabama Beverage Control ( ABC ). During the
investigation evidence showed that illegal activities
involving the distribution of crack cocaine were taking
place at the residence. At the end of this investigation a
search warrant for the residence was obtained. Due to the
large amount of traffic at the residence and the number of
persons which often were at the residence, the Covington
County Incident Response Team was called upon to secure the
residence and anyone who might be there.
At the residence crack cocaine and items used in the
distribution of crack cocaine were recovered from inside
Bettis' residence. Ronnie Bettis was arrested and charged
with three counts of unlawful distribution of a controlled
substance, and one count of unlawful possession of a
controlled substance and unlawful possession of drug
paraphernalia.  His total bond amount is eight hundred
thousand dollars. Two other individuals were arrested on
unrelated charges.
Special thanks to Opp Assistant Chief McDonald who is the
Commander of the Incident Response Team and all the members
that make the team a very important tool in this fight on
crime. And to Florala Police Chief Sonny Bledsole and
Assistant Chief Chris Jackson, their assistance was
instrumental in information gathering, and a positive
conclusion to this case.
