The Talladega County Drug and Violent Crime Task Force has arrested four people on felony drug charges during the past

TALLADEGA COUNTY -- The Talladega County Drug and Violent Crime Task Force has arrested four people on felony drug charges during the past week, according to Talladega County Metro Jail records.

The first of these arrests was Thursday, when Munford police pulled over Micah Brandon Shierling, 41, of Lincoln, for alleged traffic violations, according to task force Cmdr. Jason Murray.

Further investigation turned up methamphetamine in his car, and he was subsequently arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance, Murray said. Bond in the case was set at $5,000.

Sunday night, Murray said, Lincoln police responded to a burglary call that led to the arrests of Evan Eugene Carmichael III, 29, of Riverside, and Tamara Christina Thornton, 36, of Talladega. Although neither of them ended up being charged with burglary, both had methamphetamine and syringes at the time, Murray said.

Murray said the suspects were charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Bond in both cases was set at $5,000 by Circuit Judge Bo Hollingsworth.

Carmichael was already out on bond on drug charges when he was arrested, Murray said. Thornton also had a small quantity of marijuana with her and was charged with a misdemeanor for that.

A Talladega police officer was responding to an unrelated call early Monday near Avenue H at Davis Street when he spotted a vehicle speeding and pulled it over, according to Capt. John McCoy of the Talladega Police Department. Parys Quinn Murphy, 54, the driver, had what appeared to be crack cocaine and a glass pipe in the car with him, McCoy said.

Murray said Murphy was charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia and was being held on a $5,000 bond, also set by Hollingsworth.

Possession of a controlled substance is a class D felony in Alabama, punishable upon conviction by one year and one day to five years in prison. Possession of drug paraphernalia is a misdemeanor.
