Loxley and Baldwin County police have been working to combat illegal drug sales and overall crime in the Loxley Heights community and recently seized methamphetamine and other substances amid an investigation.
Officers with the Baldwin County Drug Task Force initiated an investigation and purchased tracking amounts of methamphetamine from several people. Along with members of the Loxley Police Department, investigators “spent months gathering intelligence, identifying suspects and establishing patterns of criminal behavior,” according to a news release from the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office.
A search warrant was executed on March 22 on Loxley Heights Road. According to the sheriff’s office, citizen complaints of drug activity in the area contributed to the investigation. From the search, 173 grams of methamphetamine, 22 grams of powder cocaine, 25 grams of crack cocaine, 20 grams of synthetic marijuana, 20 tablets suspected of containing fentanyl and 20 hydrocodone tablets were seized.
“We don’t always release information on our drug investigations, but know that we are committed to reducing illegal drug sales and other criminal activity throughout Baldwin County,” the release said. “This case is just an example of how cooperation between multiple agencies can reduce crime and increase safety in our community.
As a result of the search, Quincy Prim was charged with six counts of unlawful distribution of a controlled substance, conspiracy to commit a controlled substance crime, two counts of trafficking methamphetamine, unlawful possession of a controlled substance (spice), unlawful possession of a controlled substance (hydrocodone) and trafficking cocaine. Jimmy Lee Salter was charged with unlawful distribution of a controlled substance and conspiracy to commit a controlled substance crime.
