Madison County sheriff’s deputies seized methamphetamine, marijuana, guns and nearly $15,000 cash during the search of a rural home north of Comer on Tuesday night, authorities said Thursday.
The seizures resulted in the arrests of Verman Carldon Wallace, 70, and Jacqueline Renee Parham, 53, at the home on Davids Home Church Road.
Wallace is charged with trafficking in meth, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. Parham is charged with possession of meth with intent to distribute.
Deputies had gone to the location to serve arrest warrants on two men, but were told that neither man was at the house, according to Madison County Chief Deputy Jeff Vaughn.
“We asked for permission to go in and look around the house and we found a lot of (drug) paraphernalia,” Vaughn said.
This discovery prompted the supervising deputy to call the narcotics officer, who obtained a search warrant from a judge, Vaughn said.
A large amount of meth was found, along with an almost gallon-size bag of marijuana and almost $15,000 in cash, he said.
There were 18 guns seized, mostly rifles and shotguns, and none were reported stolen, Vaughn said. The two men sought on the arrest warrants were not located.
Wallace and Parham remained in jail Thursday without bond.
