Five Andalusia residents are facing drug charges after the 22nd Judicial Circuit Drug Task Force executed a search warrant early Wednesday morning, August 12, at which they recovered approximately 37 grams of methamphetamine, pills, marijuana, synthetic marijuana, five weapons and a ballistic vest.

Andalusia Police Chief Paul Hudson said the DTF had been conducting an investigation into illegal narcotics at 605 8th Avenue that led to the arrest of five people, including:

  • Michael Landrum Sr., 48, charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia and held on a $65,000 bond.

  • Oddesius LeCharles Bryant, 30, charged with trafficking, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of marijuana II, and held on a $602,000 bond.
