MOULTON, AL (WAFF) – Lawrence County deputies arrested a Moulton man for unlawful distribution of a controlled substance.

Deputies arrested 60-year-old Anthony Corbin Letson Friday morning.

The investigation tarted after the Sheriff's Office got several complaints about illegal drug activity involving Letson.

Investigators made two controlled buys of prescription medication from Letson before moving in to make the arrest, according to Sheriff Gene Mitchell.

Letson was jailed in Lawrence County without bond because he was currently on probation for an assault case out of Birmingham and the sheriff said he may face a probation revocation hearing because of the new charges.
