4 arrested in DeKalb County drug bust

Alabama authorities recently arrested four people for making or using meth in two separate drug busts.

The DeKalb County drug task force arrested three people at a house on County Road 134 in Henagar, Ala., on Sunday, said Sheriff Jimmy Harris in a news release.

Leslie Lavon Moore, 19, and Sean Albert Erickson, 23, who lived at the house, and Kevin Dewayne Lofton, 33, of Henagar, were charged with manufacturing controlled substance and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, Harris said.

All three suspects were transported to the DeKalb County Detention Center, where they remain awaiting bond.

In a separate incident, deputies were conducting a driver’s license check when they found a driver with meth and drug paraphernalia in his vehicle, Harris said.

Dustin Shane Roberts, 24, of Higdon, was charged with unlawful possession of controlled substance and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, the sheriff said. He remains in jail at this time on $9,000 total bond.
