MADISON COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – A Huntsville man was arrested Friday, August 5, after authorities said he was caught smuggling a large amount of drugs into Madison County.

Jason Phillip Bost, 41, was arrested last week as part of an investigation by the Madison County Sheriff’s Office’s Narcotics Unit and Street Crimes Unit.
