Connell Man, Son Jailed on Drug Charges in Huge Alabama Bust
From the Baldwin County Sheriff Deputies facebook page:
On February 28, 2018, Baldwin County Sheriff Deputies assigned to the Special Operation Unit conducted a vehicle stop on a Ford F150 pulling a flatbed trailer eastbound on Interstate 10 at the 56-mile marker for No/ Plainly Visible Tag. The trailer was hauling 2 golf carts. The truck was driven by Donald Scott Sells, and his 15-year-old son was also an occupant of the vehicle. During conversation with both Sells and his son, conflicting statements were made by both. Mr. Sells gave the deputies permission to conduct a search of his vehicle and trailer. While conducting that search 8 heavy duty vehicle batteries were discovered in the golf carts in a factory battery compartment under the seats; however, their weight was inconsistent with the typical weight of a vehicle battery. All eight vehicle batteries were found to contain contraband. Deputies recovered 32 bundles of Crystal Methamphetamine weighing approximately 115 pounds.
Donald Scott Sells was arrested for Drug Trafficking and taken to the Baldwin County Corrections Center, his juvenile son was arrested for Possession of Marijuana 2nd Degree and was transported to Baldwin County Juvenile Detention Center.
Sells and his son are from Connell, WA.
