Athens man indicted for alleged drug trafficking

Alvin Bernard Evans

A Clarke County grand jury recently indicted an Athens man on drug trafficking charges.

 

Alvin Bernard Evans, 61, was charged with trafficking in cocaine, trafficking in heroin, possession with intent to distribute marijuana, and possession with intent to distribute a Schedule II controlled substance, according to the indictment filed this week in Clarke County Superior Court.

Evans was arrested Dec. 6 when members of the Northeast Georgia Regional Drug Task Force searched his home on Sherwood Court, according to an Athens-Clarke County police report.

The indictment states that Evans was found in possession of more than 20 grams of coke, more than 4 grams of heroin, and unspecified amounts of marijuana and hydromorphone, which is a form of morphine.

The arrest came following a search of Evans’ home two months ago.

Evans had previously been indicted on drug charges in connection with a 2008 drug task force search of his home on Danielsville Road, according to police and court documents.

The indictment, which charged Evans with possession with intent to distribute cocaine, possession of morphine and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, was subsequently dismissed after a judge granted a defense motion to suppress evidence, according to court records.

Evans has been held without bail at the Clarke County Jail since his arrest in December, according to the Clarke County Jail’s website.
