Alleged meth seized Thursday; one arrested

An investigation into alleged drug trafficking in the Dollarway area resulted in the arrest of one person on felony charges Thursday.

Lisa McIntyre, 41, was one of several people found in a house in the 5800 block of Kinght Street when police vice and narcotics officers served a search warrant Thursday afternoon.

Detective Richard McCorvy reported that investigators found a small zip-lock bag containing a white powder substance and a smoking pipe with a white residue. Both tested positive for methamphetamine.

Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said a second smoking pipe, digital scales, empty zip-lock bags and 15 individual bags containing a green vegetable substance that field tested positive for marijuana were also found.

A second person who was in the house was arrested on misdemeanor charges while a third was released pending further investigation.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $25,000 bond for McIntyre after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge her with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Bridgforth appointed the Public Defender’s Office to represent McIntyre and told her to come back to court April 19.
