Two people in custody in Alabama for trafficking "spice"

Posted: Updated:
DEKALB COUNTY, AL (WRCB) -

Two people are in custody in DeKalb County, Alabama for drug trafficking. 


The DeKalb County Sheriff's Office in conjunction with Drug Task Force agents and the DEA arrested Corey Wayne Martin of Arkansas and Stephen Austin Hammonds of Crossville, TN for delivering 2.2 pounds of the chemical used to spray spice. 


This chemical is extremely dangerous in its concentrated form. Once the chemical is mixed and put into liquid form it is sprayed on the material and sold as synthetic marijuana or “spice” as it is known on the street. The street value of this drug seized is estimated at $400,000.00.  Sheriff Harris says this amount of chemical could have made over 100 pounds of spice.

More arrests are expected to be made as the investigation continues. 

Martin is charged with Trafficking in Synthetics Cannabinoids and Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. Hammonds is charged with Unlawful Possession of Controlled Substance and Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. Both are being held in the DeKalb County Detention Center awaiting bonds.
