Nine Elmore County residents and one Montgomery County resident were arrested on the morning of Jan. 24, 2013, by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Central Alabama Drug Task Force (CADTF) for conspiring to distribute crack cocaine, United States Attorney George L. Beck, Jr. announced today. The arrests stemmed from a federal indictment that charged 14 people from Elmore and Montgomery Counties.
Those arrested in this raid were:
Terry Tyrone Humphrey, 41, of Montgomery; Tristan Travis Rawls, 33, of Wetumpka; Jacky Sagers, 32, of Wetumpka; Arthur Rodrequis Young, 41, of Wetumpka; British Tremaine George, 34, of Wetumpka; Damichael Orlane Chapman, 23, of Wetumpka; Duke George, 33, of Wetumpka; Patrick Demond Hicks, 35, of Wetumpka; Robert McKenzie, 22, of Wetumpka.
Kevin Levan Elmore, 36, of Montgomery; Stacy Rodrekus Calloway, 24, of Wetumpka; Markevius Jerrell Calloway, 22, of Wetumpka; and Tyrone Devontae George, 24, of Wetumpka, are all already in custody on other charges. Carlos Montrell Harris , 25, of Wetumpka is still at large. (FBI press release)
The 57-count indictment charges Kevin Levan Elmore, Stacy Rodrekus Calloway, Terry Tyrone Humphrey, Tristan Travis Rawls, Markevius Jerrell Calloway, Jacky Sagers, Tyrone Devontae George, Arthur Rodrequis Young, British Tremaine George, Damichael Orlane Chapman, Carlos Montrell Harris, Duke George, Patrick Demond Hicks, and Robert McKenzie conspired to possess with intent to distribute and distribute over 280 grams of crack cocaine. (Ibid)
Several of these defendants are also charged with distributing crack or powder cocaine on specific dates between June 2011 and January 2012. Some are also charged with using cellular telephones to facilitate drug trafficking. Stacy and Markevius Calloway are also each charged with possessing firearms in relation to their drug trafficking offenses.
If convicted, the defendants are facing a minimum of 10 years in prison and a maximum of life in prison.
We are reminded that an indictment is only an allegation that crimes have been committed, and the defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
