Major Drug Suspect Arrested in Barbour County

Barbour County authorities believe Wednesday’s arrest of a major drug suspect will help drug fighting efforts in Southeast Alabama.

28-year-old Kelvin Griffin of Louisville was arrested during a traffic stop near downtown Clayton.

Chief Deputy Eddie Ingram says deputies found approximately 5-pounds of cocaine and just under a pound of marijuana in Griffin's car.

Griffin was charged with trafficking a controlled substance and marijuana possession.

He was already on probation for drug charges in Pike County.

Griffin is being held in the Barbour County Jail without bond.
