Authorities said a federal fugitive was apprehended in Alabama on Friday carrying more than two pounds of different substances and a semi-automatic rifle.
The Tallapoosa County Narcotics Task Force and the U.S. Marshals Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force served federal warrants on Alexander City resident Henry Tarvale Finley, 39, for possession with intent to distribute and possession of a firearm during a drug crime, according to the Tallapoosa County sheriff’s office.
The task forces allegedly discovered 627 grams of marijuana, 240 grams of psilocybin mushrooms, 14 grams of ecstasy, and 136 packs of THC edibles prepared by Finley inside his home on Nathan Street.
Finley allegedly used numerous products to extract THC from marijuana and inject it into candies and treats, according to investigators.
Authorities said they discovered an Intratec 9mm, or “Tec-9,” as well as the drugs at the apartment.
Finley was charged with controlled substance production, unlawful possession with intent to distribute, controlled substance possession, unlawful possession of a handgun, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
As of Friday, the inquiry was still ongoing.
