Headland Drug Arrests

Headland Police arrested two people in what they say is one of the biggest drug busts in a long time.

34-year-old Rupert Ward, Jr. and 24-year-old Tamekia Reese were arrested for trafficking in cocaine, marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Officials confiscated cocaine, scales, growing aquariums, firearms, security cameras and drug magazines from the Headland home.

Investigators had been watching the place since December.

The Alabama Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms unit has been notified and there may be further charges.

Police also confiscated a bullet-proof vest and are tracing the serial number to see how the suspects got it.
