Morgan Co. deputies make heroin bust

DECATUR, AL (WAFF) -

Morgan County deputies arrested a man accused of trafficking heroin.

Officials said they received tips of heroin sales in Morgan County. Investigators developed Timothy Shane Rogers as a suspect.

Investigators said Rogers had been making weekly trips to Birmingham to purchase the drugs. He would then sell it in Morgan County.

Investigators searched Rogers' home and found drug paraphernalia, all of which had heroin residue on it. They also seized a black Mercedes-Benz.

Rogers was arrested and charged with three counts of distribution of a controlled substance.

Investigators expect to make further arrests.
