Here are a few of the criminal law stories that occurred around the state of Alabama this past week:
- Recently, the Shelby County Drug Enforcement Task Force arrested a 47-year-old suspect after a complaint led the authorities to a large hydroponic marijuana grow system. After seizing and harvesting the marijuana and marijuana oil, the task force destroyed the grow site. The estimate of product seized is around $320,000. The suspect, Jason Patrick Center, is being held in the Shelby County Jail on a $1 million bond.
- When confronted by authorities, a Lee County man wanted on charges of first-degree and second-degree assault escaped through his Auburn residence window with nothing more than a pair of shoes. Authorities captured and arrested the still-naked suspect a few hours later on Shug Jordan Parkway. The suspect, 22-year-old Jamal Aikeem Hutchinson, and his accomplice, 21-year-old Malik Marquis Williams of Salem, were wanted in connection with an April 17th robbery and assault of an acquaintance.
- A 22-year-old woman is in custody and is awaiting formal murder charges after allegedly shooting her 58-year-old grandmother on the way to another family member’s funeral. Though the subject of the altercation that led to the shooting is still unknown, the two were headed to the funeral for the mother of the grandmother’s live-in boyfriend. Police said the boyfriend witnessed the entire incident.
