Couple jailed for methamphetamine

A couple landed in Holmes County Jail on drug charges after a traffic stop was initiated for not having a tag on the vehicle.

On Aug. 16, Holmes County Sheriff’s deputies conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle without a tag at S.R. 79 and Ninth Avenue in Esto. The driver of the vehicle was identified as John Floyd of Cottondale, and the passenger was identified as Brandy Ward of Slocomb, Alabama.

During the stop, K-9 Highway performed a free-air sniff around the vehicle and gave a positive alert to the presence of illegal narcotics.

A probable cause search of the vehicle found a red bag with a container holding a baggie of methamphetamine and a glass pipe with residue inside. A backpack containing two additional baggies of methamphetamine was also found. Ward claimed ownership of the backpack, according to HCSO.
