A Clanton man was arrested April 26 following the execution of a drug search warrant at a home in the 900th block of Fourth Avenue South.

Kenyon Floyd, a resident of the home, was charged with four counts of unlawful distribution of a controlled substance, first-degree possession of marijuana, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and receiving stolen property. As of Friday, Floyd was in the Chilton County Jail on bonds totaling $160,000.

CPD detectives have received numerous complaints of drug activity at the address. Undercover officers were able to purchase what is believed to be several illegal narcotics, including marijuana and crack cocaine, Police Chief Brian Stilwell said.

During their search Thursday, officers recovered marijuana, crack cocaine, weight scales, plastic bags and stolen property, Stilwell said.

“We often receive stolen property at drug houses,” Stilwell said. “Our drug users will shoplift, commit burglaries, steal and often trade those items for illegal drugs.”

The department’s property crime detectives are working to find the rightful owners of the recovered property.

The investigation is ongoing, and Stilwell said additional charges may be filed. Anyone with any information should contact CPD detectives at 755-1194, ext. 319 or call the anonymous tip line at 755-1416.
