Huntsville police arrested Sabore Basden, 29, for Trafficking Methamphetamine, Trafficking Fentanyl, and Possession of Marijuana.
Court records show Basden was caught this week along Mt. Vernon Road with about 18 ounces of methamphetamine and 4.85 grams of fentanyl. Investigators also seized a stash of cash.
Basden was booked into the Madison County jail with bond set at a million dollars.
Court records show Basden was arrested and charged with attempted murder in 2013 for firing shots at a Huntsville police officer after fleeing from the officer after running a red light.
