According to our news partners at, Trussville Police arrested 32-year-old Damien Beckham and 46-year-old Candida McCary. Both face charges including drug trafficking, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

“Yes, recreational marijuana is still illegal in Alabama,” the police department posted on Facebook. “No, this is not a personal use amount.  Yes, marijuana does come from a seed that is planted in the ground, but the same can be said about the coca plant and the poppy plant from which cocaine and heroin are derived.”

In addition to drug charges, police say Beckham is wanted in Illinois for felony aggravated assault with a vehicle on a police officer and felony theft in Georgia.

Both are held in the St. Clair County Jail on bonds totaling over $1.5 million.
