A Clanton resident was arrested on May 3 on drug charges related to the possession of the substance known as “legal weed” or “Spice,” according to information provided by Clanton Police.

Darryl Christopher Davis II was arrested by Clanton Police Department Street Crimes/Narcotics officers at his room at the Inn of Clanton at the conclusion of an undercover operation that began after several reports of Davis selling the substance.

Thirteen packages of the substance, which was made illegal by Executive Order No. 24 from Gov. Robert Bentley’s office, along with packaging materials and $630 were confiscated during the execution of a search warrant.

Davis has been charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

“We would like to emphasize the fact that this product is illegal in our state and will be treated as any other controlled substance,” CPD Capt. David Clackley said in a release.”
