Four people were arrested in three separate drug busts handled by the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office during the last week of April.

On April 29, Deputy Ginger Creamer was dispatched to an Apalachicola residence regarding a verbal disagreement. Creamer began questioning one of the subjects involved, and after a quick search, she discovered cocaine, paraphernalia, and a large amount of currency. The subject, Steven Kembro, 26, Apalachicola, was arrested and charged with possession of controlled substance with intent to sell, possession of paraphernalia, and corruption by threats.

Also, on April 29, Deputy Casey Harrell conducted a traffic stop that led to the arrest of two subjects for drug charges. Harrell recovered crack cocaine, marijuana, Xanax pills, and a large amount of currency. The driver, Michael Shawn Langley, 27, Bristol, was transported to the sheriff’s office and charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell and possession of more than 20 grams of cannabis. The passenger, Brandy Marie Davis, 22, Eastpoint, was arrested and charged with possession of less than 20 grams of cannabis.

On April 30, Harrell observed a subject in Apalachicola with an active warrant, who was identified as Jeremy J. James, 22, Apalachicola. During the arrest six bags of marijuana were found, and James was taken to the sheriff’s office and charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell and resisting an officer without violence.

“The Franklin County Sheriff's Office is working diligently to clear our streets of illegal drugs,” said Sheriff Mike Mock. “This is another example of how our deputies are working to keep our children and this community safe.”
