JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ala. (WIAT) — The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office has arrested two individuals after a plethora of drugs were found in two residences in the county Tuesday.
According to JCSO, a search warrant was executed at a home in the 2800 block of Avenue F in Ensley. There, 38 grams of heroin, 81 grams of methamphetamine, two ounces of marijuana and a handgun were recovered.
Information deputies received at the first location led them to check a second location in the 5000 block of Winchester Hills Terrace in Birmingham. A large assortment of prescription drugs, one gram of meth, two ounces of marijuana and $3,000 were found inside and seized.
The residents at the two locations were arrested. 56-year-old Vincent Ferell Davis (right) and 47-year-old Keisha Danielle Cook (left) were taken into custody Tuesday.

Davis has been charged with trafficking heroin and trafficking meth. No bond has been set for him at this time.
