DECATUR, Ala. (WAAY) - Authorities arrested a Decatur man on drug charges after months of investigation.

Decatur Police Department's Organized Crime Unit began conducting an illegal sale of drugs investigation in August of last year. Investigators listed Christopher Derek Hood, 21, as a suspect.

A cooperating witness purchased prescription pills from Hood while inside of Public Housing. A felony warrant for Unlawful Distribution of a Controlled Substance was obtained on Hood.

Friday, authorities arrested Hood at his home and charged him with Unlawful Distribution of a Controlled Substance and for four misdemeanor warrants.

Hood is behind bars in the Decatur City Jail on a $5,000 bond.
