Christopher Lavon White, 29, and Julian Arthur Harris, 25, were arrested Tuesday after a traffic stop, according to Task Force Commander Jason Murray. White had a warrant for unlawful distribution of a controlled substance, namely crack cocaine, and a bond of $20,000.
Harris was driving and had a gun and crack cocaine with him. He was charged with possession of a controlled substance as well as attempting to elude and carrying a pistol without a permit. His bond was also set at $20,000, by District Judge Jeb Fannin.
Candice Gober Miller, 24, was also arrested Tuesday in an unrelated incident. Murray said she was served with two warrants for possession of a controlled substance that were originally issued in April.
Miller’s bond was also set at $20,000.
Richard Lamont Christian, 34, was arrested Thursday on two warrants for distribution of a controlled substance, again crack cocaine. Bond in these cases was set at $30,000 each by Fannin, Murray said.
Kelvin Denard Chatmon, 30, was arrested Thursday on a single count of crack distribution, Murray said. Total bond in this case was set at $40,000.
All five of the recently arrested subjects live in the Talladega area, Murray said.
Distribution of a controlled substance is a Class B felony in Alabama, punishable upon conviction by 2 to 20 years in prison. Possession of a controlled substance is a Class C felony, punishable upon conviction by one year and one day to 10 years in prison.
Attempting to elude and carrying a pistol without a permit are misdemeanors.
