The Alabama State Trooper Regional Drug Task Force, Federal Drug Enforcement Administration, Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms, and the Jackson County Narcotics Unit were also involved in the raid.

During the search, an undisclosed amount of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia was found. Firearms were also seized by the ATF on scene, Pruett said.
