Welfare check leads to drug trafficking arrest in Morgan County

  • 0

A welfare check on a man passed out in a car outside a Morgan County service station ended in a drug trafficking arrest, records show.

Morgan County deputies found Eddie Louis Golden of Center Point unresponsive Wednesday. He was inside a car at the service station on Cotaco Florette Road and Alabama 67 South.

An affidavit filed Thursday said deputies broke out a car window and noticed "substances in (Golden's) lap ... believed to be controlled substances." Golden was woken up by emergency medical technicians but refused additional medical assistance, and a field test on two substances found in the car identified them as fentanyl and methamphetamine, according to the affidavit.

Records show Golden was booked into the Morgan County Jail on a $10,000 bond. He is charged with trafficking in fentanyl and unlawful possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine).
