Two Arrested on Drug Charges After Drug Search on Moores Mill Rd.

MADISON COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – Two people have been arrested on drug charges following a search of a home on Moores Mill Road.

Ricky Glenn Taylor, 52, and Stacy L. Taylor, 34, are in custody.  Authorities say the two trafficked prescription and illegal drugs.

Lt. Michael Salomonsky says deputies executed the narcotics search warrant at 6900 Moores Mill Road after 5 a.m. Wednesday.

Deputies say they found the two suspects with a child inside the home.  They also say they found oxycodone, marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

“Mr. Taylor is known to us, has been arrested by the Sheriff’s Department on a number of occasions for trafficking various controlled substances… that is oxycodone, Lorisets, things of that nature, prescription drugs,” said Lt. Salomonsky. “We have in the past found a large amount of cash in his possession that was a result of the drug dealing and the transactions taking place.”

Agents also checked another location, a home on Bentley Road, believed to be connected to the investigation, Lt. Salomonsky said.

    Meh, if people want to smoke marijuana inside their own homes and aren’t infringing on the rights of anyone else who are we to judge?

  • patrick blackwell

    Spelling Preston spelling. It’s really depressing to see college graduates working in print media that have such difficulty spelling Lorisets… really.

  • MMA

    with previous arrests for drugs since the 80’s, he should get life in prison with NO parole! Its time to take the “trash” out of society. hopefully, many more arrests will be made and more “trash” will be put in a cage as well.

      Of course, w/ such an idiotic comment, you wouldn’t attempt to sign your name. You are a fool and I can bet you have some type of addict in your family…go turn them in!

  • jamison jones

    MMA, which world do you live in? You really and surely must be living a very boring life. SWAT? Really? All ‘em cars? Come on…For oxycodone, Marijuana and drug paraphernalia!. I thought they had gat that prison escapee! Dasher..you know.

      Jamison Jones maybe due to the violent history of this family that maybe you don’t know anything about is why they sent in the SWAT team. Bo Taylor has been known to riddle bullets through people’s trucks in the 80’s and hold knifes at people’s throats!

    This is the same guy that they busted a few years ago for one of the biggest drug busts in Madison County. If my memory is correct, it totalled over $400,000.00 in drugs and money. I believe there were thousands and thousands of pills that were found in the home, not including other drugs and weapons as well. Why would they take this guy lightly and not send SWAT in? How is this a waste of taxpayer money? If you do not have a problem with this kind of stuff going on, then maybe he can move to your neighborhood? My kids play in a neighborhood not too far from this. As a resident of an area not far from where this took place this morning, I am very glad that WHNT reported this story so that I, along with many other people, know what is going on in our area. So I personally say thank you to WHNT for reporting this story to the public and I will also say thank you to my fellow colleagues for investigating this guy and taking him off the street, hopefully for longer this time.

  • jamison jones

    mEGAN, you are just jealous that he was probably living way better than you in your hood. This rant is typical. You might love your kids that much but i think you are overshooting yourself. chill out Your memory might as well have served you wrong. Guys like this usually end up winning their cases with good lawyers which they can afford anyway. He’s presumed innocent till proven guilty..remember?

    • Lisa

      That is where you are wrong Jamison. Each drug he/she is caught with carries a maximum number of years sentence and I for one know he keeps snitching and getting back out. It’s not the money paying off people. Drug dealing can carry life without parole sentences. Ricky Taylor has been a snitch since the 80’s and his brother has done violent things. I think he is getting exactly what he deserves. Years ago back in the 80’s he was dealing and had his very own drug house selling drugs out of and when ” Buddy Pruitt” got arrested he turned Federal evidence claiming he was working for Buddy when he WAS NOT! They were not even friends when Buddy got arrested!! His brother Bo whom was arrested riddled bullets through Buddy’s driveway hitting a pickup truck near one of his kids bedrooms and went to another home and held a knife at Buddy’s nephews throat! I think it’s Karma and payback and yes! Get this TRASH off the streets!!

        Lisa I was physically there during that event in the 80’s. I was very young and remember well. My mom took his then wife to hospital with two bullet holes in the chest. It was scary and was a traumatic event in my life. The reason it was such a traumatic event was because I lost the only father figure I had growing up. So yes even though the choices he makes still aren’t very bright you need to remember people love him for him because as silly as this may sound to all of you with your opinions Ricky Taylor was a wonderful man to myself and my brother. I will never forget him and refuse to let this change my opinion of him. Maybe swat should do their job and raid pill mills and then there could be a big difference in what goes on in the area in which you live…….FYI you should be more concerned with sexual predators who prey on children living in your area this a few pill pushers

        Angel, Yes his wife Sherry was a good friend to my dad BP.and so was Ricky at one time, but then greed and love of money set in and destroyed friendship. The incident with Sherry was blamed on my father BP but I was at home when this incident happened and I was aware as a teenager much of the dealings that went on and I know my dad had nothing to do with Sherry’s shooting. It was the one he sent his brother to rob at knife/gun point. Yes, you may love him as I will always my father too but wrong is wrong. Drugs hurt innocent people and families and nothing good comes of “EASY” money believe me!! My father lost his life on the streets!! He had Ricky T and several other drug dealers shift all their blame on my father who in return went to prison for ALL of these low-life drug dealers…I as a teenager had to put myself through high school working several jobs….have worked manufacturing jobs since I was about 16….my dad served 10 years in prison before dieing and didn’t get to watch my graduation, didn’t get to hold or meet my daughters or my son or get to watch them grow as well as his other children’s kids.(grandkids)…most of his prison life, he spent in California, Atlanta, Florida which we didn’t get to even visit him often. Even when he collapsed with a heart-attack in prison and they prepared his body, they died his hair, and in all honesty, we had to look at a cross tattoo on his hand to know 100% it was our father in the casket. I could write a book about my childhood experiences and the hurt we have endured as children and having OUR FAMILY torn and split apart. One baby brother was only 8 going to live with another relative, etc. We were told NOT even take pots and pans and curtains from our home that they confiscated. Everything I knew was LOST!! Home and everything!! Most of all the father we knew was lost to us….I do believe when you wrong people, it will come back around on you. Just saying.

    I would welcome a tax increase to put more trash in prison and keep them there. This scum has no place in polite society, Period! “resources” were correctly spent on this operation. those of you who are crying about this, maybe you will be next.

  • Megan

    My “hood”? Shows how ignorant you are. I do not live in the “hood”, thank you very much. Jealous? I live in a very nice neighborhood just a few miles from there. PS- my memory is correct as I work in the law field for Madison County as well as a criminal attorney who has represented him in the past….I think I may know about this guy and his past very well. He is presumed innocent until proven guilty, but he has been proven guilty on PLENTY of charges in the past.

    • Lisa

      Megan, the hood- I work for a company making over $25 an hour and it’s people like this that makes our neighborhood trash. Let them clean up the Hood! I for one will welcome it!!

      • Megan

        I hope the police and everyone involved can shut down these operations in more neighborhoods around our city so that people don’t have to live in fear of people like this. It’s not fair that hard working people have to live around this, no matter their income.

  • burt ernie

    You are all off the mark here! What you dont see is that the war on drugs is a war on humans! I know about everyone I know has had someone in the family that would do drugs of some kind! Why??? Because they are In every neighborhood in America! The so called drug war failed!!###! Its time we decriminalize it all. The people who are going to do them still will but it will keep the money in the USA! Wake up you pathetic sheep!!

  • MMA

    Burt, your grammar is atrocious. “Leaving” in your fairytale? Go back to school AND back to sleep.

    • burt ernie

      Mma I bet ur at church every sunday praying to a god, that was supposed to have created this place. But we have people living in tents in under bridges, kids going without food, religious wars all the time! Well you keep going buddy you need that kind of help you geek! All you religious freaks are just scared of the real world! So keep hiding behind a fairytale!

    • Joseph Townsend

      MMA maybe if those billions going to the “Drug War” went to education then just maybe Burt could spell better, You shouldn’t be critical to the man unless you’re atrocious.

    • Michael

      Except we don’t have near enough prison cells for them. Why don’t you donate them some money so they can build more? Better yet, why don’t you let them build the new prison in your vicinity? What? Not in your backyard? Thought so…

  • Linda

    Why aren’t we looking for the Doctor that keep writing the prescriptions for this guy, he/she also need to face charges……………………

  • jamison jones

    so megan what exactly is your problem with this guy? He doesn’t seem to bother you. You’ve made money off of him by representing him. i mean, you are in the law field? you should have been an activist or a preacher. He probably gave you the money to buy the nice house that you live in. Think about it. Thats how most trial lawyers have made their fortune including you. Just find a way to make more money off of him! its your business. you should be celebrating cuz he has the potential to be yyour client and hence more money.

  • jamison jones

    quit your activism and be a lawyer. period. Let everybody else ‘run’ their business as they see fit. if they get caught, thats part of the risk of being a drug dealer. its what it is.

  • Megan

    I am not an attorney, please read my comment a little closer. Just because an attorney and their staff make money on these people, do you really think that justifies him selling drugs to the community??? Money or no money being made, it doesn’t make it okay. I think you are missing my point. It is proven that where there are large amounts of drugs, there is violence as well. Tell me Jamison Jones, do you want someone on this kind of level dealing drugs next to where you live? Where your kids/grandkids play? What happens if/when someone runs in this house and robs him? What happens if someone comes to rob him and your kids/grandkids happens to be outside? It only takes one time, correct?? Maybe he can run his “business” somewhere near you. I personally do not like that “business” being around my children, or anyone else’s children either. It is a dangerous game and I will stand by my statement that I am glad these drugs are off the streets and this man in behind bars, at least for a while. I feel that this kind of “business” being shut down in my neighborhood is a FANTASTIC thing. II am very happy my tax dollars went to shutting this down, along with other dealers in Hunstville as well.

    I think most decent people would agree that this large of a “business” needed to be shut down.

    • Lisa

      AGREE! who wants to find syringes these junkies throw out all around neighboring yards disposing of their evidence just incase they get pulled over. What if your child found one and decided to play doctor and nurse. Not funny business is it?? It happens.

  • jamison jones

    i admire your passion but its a little misguided. i lived next to dope dealers and i have children too. i NEVER made a fuss of it like you are doping. I don’t like it but i quietly moved away and we are friends to this day. what they do is quite frankly none of my business, if its not in my house, well, its all good. Thats for law enforcement and well, they did their job. For the private citizen, well, just be quiet about it and go on with your life.

  • finisha

    joseph i agree also….n MMA u call this a polite society?This hell on earth!You all need to visit diff. Bigger cities…its the same thing diff. day u just hearing about it more!Ppl going Ham in the ukraine wt do you suggest they do with them?Everybody know that be in the streets that its consequences to it so wt u mad fa?

  • finisha
