Woman found overdosing in Sheffield drug bust

COLBERT COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – A Tuscumbia man has been arrested after authorities found several different drugs and a woman was found overdosing at a Sheffield residence.

Aaron Ladon Carroll, 31, was taken into custody after the Colbert County Drug Task Force said he tried to get away from them. He was arrested on two felony grand jury indictments on drug-related charges.

Authorities say when they executed a search warrant at the home on West 10th Street on Thursday, they found a woman on the floor overdosing. Her face had already turned purple, so officers immediately gave her Narcan and rushed her to the hospital.

During the search of the residence, task force officers found an ounce of heroin, 19 grams of crystal meth, 10 fentanyl pills and marijuana that had already been packaged for resale, authorities said. .

Officers also found 62 gabapentin pills, MDMA caplets, a 9mm handgun and $2,300 in cash.

Carroll was charged with two counts of drug trafficking, unlawful possession with intent to distribute, unlawful possession of a controlled substance and first degree unlawful possession of marijuana.

He was taken to Colbert County Jail and will likely be held without bond due to his prior felony convictions and grand jury felony indictments, with other charges likely in the future.

The Sheffield Police Department and Colbert County Sheriff’s Office assisted the task force with the search.
