Deputies say Byrd had a gun and pills on him, and had more handguns, shotguns, drugs and $9,000 cash at his residence, 1203B Wells Avenue in Huntsville’s Five Points neighborhood.  They also confiscated $16,000 in pills.

Byrd lived in a duplex, and authorities say people visited his home frequently. During the course of questioning, Byrd also told deputies about a storage unit in his name. There, they found several additional weapons.

They are now attempting to trace the guns and determine the source of the prescription drugs.

Investigators say neighbor complaints often provide key information needed to make drug arrests. They urge anyone who suspects criminal activity to contact the Madison County Sheriff’s Office. An online complaint form is also available through the Sheriff’s website.
