Covington County Sheriff Deputies, Alabama State Troopers and Drug Task Force Agents stayed busy Saturday night by making three drug arrests within a matter of minutes. While conducting a vehicle safety checkpoint in the Fleeta Community, Sheriff Deputies and Alabama State Troopers came in contact with a vehicle occupied by Jeremy D. Sorrells, 31, and Bradford F. Boothe, 31. While speaking with the occupants of the vehicle, CCSO Sgt. Jeff Daniel noticed that the occupants seemed nervous. He asked the driver, Sorrells, to pull over to the side of the road. Sgt. Daniel asked Sorrells to step out of the vehicle so he could speak to him. Once Sorrells stepped out, Sgt. Daniel patted him down for weapons and located a clear plastic bag which contained a substance believed to be methamphetamine on Sorrell’s person. Sgt. Daniel detained Sorrells. Sorrells later admitted that there was a used medical syringe that contained methamphetamine residue in the car. Due to this information, Sgt. Daniel had the other occupant, Bradford F. Boothe, step out of the car. While Sgt. Daniel was patting Boothe down, he located a glass smoking device containing residue believed to be methamphetamine and a clear plastic bag containing a substance believed to be methamphetamine. Boothe was also detained and Drug Task Force Agents were contacted.

Both Sorrells and Boothe were charged with Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance and Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and were transported to the Covington County Jail for booking. While at the jail, Corrections Officers located another substance believed to be methamphetamine hidden on the person of Boothe. Based on that find, Boothe was also charged with Promoting Prison Contraband 2nd.
Sorrells’ total bond was set at $13,000 and Boothe’s at $23,000.
At the same vehicle safety checkpoint, Trooper Stephen Langham made contact with a vehicle driven by Rex Dewayne Messick, 42. While speaking with Messick, Trooper Langham had Messick step out of the vehicle and patted him down for weapons. While doing so, Trooper Langham located a round plastic container which contained a substance believed to be methamphetamine and a glass smoking device containing residue. Trooper Langham also recovered a medical syringe in Messick’s left front pants pocket.
Messick was charged with Unlawful Possession of Controlled Substance and Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. His total bond was set at $13,000. Court records also indicate that Messick was on probation in Coffee County.
"I can not imagine an addiction being so strong that you would risk your freedom for it. Each of these guys have done just that. Maybe this arrest will be the key to them getting clean and stop putting this poison in their bodies. I pray for them and their families because for so long, I have seen it destroy so many lives. I just wish these addicts would wake up." commented DTF Commander Mark Odom.
Commander Odom added that anyone with a drug or alcohol addiction can contact his office or the Office of the District Attorney. "We had much rather try to help someone get clean than lock them up. We have never turned anyone away that was truly seeking a way out of addiction. If you want it, we will help. Otherwise, eventually, you will be arrested."
