MUSCLE SHOALS, AL (WAFF) - A multi-county drug trafficking investigation that began in February ended this week with the arrest of a Sheffield man.

On March 1, agents stopped a gold Jeep Cherokee in the Shoals that was driven by 38-year-old Christopher Lamar Carroll.

Authorities recovered 17 packages of crystal methamphetamine, also known as ICE, from the vehicle. Each package weighed just over a pound and were wrapped to make K-9 dog detection more difficult.

The estimated street value of the seizure is over $750,000.

Carroll was arrested and charged with trafficking a controlled substance. He was temporarily released on a $50,000 bond.

On Wednesday, agents served Carroll with a federal warrant at his home in Sheffield. He was transported to Huntsville and is currently awaiting a detention hearing.

Officials from Colbert, Franklin and Lauderdale Counties worked in conjunction with the DEA, FBI and the U.S. Marshalls on this federal investigation.
