Agents with the Morgan County Drug Task Force, Madison-Morgan STAC Team, and ALEA Regional Drug Task Force on Monday executed a search warrant in the 1400 block of Modaus Road in Decatur.

The warrant came after agents obtained information that drug activity was occurring at the residence, which is located within a half-mile of a large, public Decatur City school, said Mike Swafford, Morgan County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson.

Tyler Wesley Ash, 19, and Zackary Blake Stephenson, 24, both, of Decatur, were arrested. Both were charged with trafficking in marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
