Geneva Co. man arrested after drug, gun raid

GENEVA COUNTY, Ala (WDHN) — A Geneva County man is behind bars after a drug raid in rural Geneva County resulted in authorities finding a multitude of guns and drugs, a press release from the Geneva County Sheriff’s Office says.

On Friday, April 26, agents with the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency’s Drug Enforcement Task Force (ADETF) and deputies with the Geneva County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant at a home on North State Highway 27 in Chancellor.

According to the Geneva County Sheriff’s Office, during the raid, authorities found approximately 1.5 pounds of meth, marijuana, a small amount of an unidentifiable substance, drug paraphernalia, U.S. Currency, and 27 guns.

The only occupant of the home, Tony Wayne Rodgers, was arrested and booked into the Geneva County Jail. A list of Rodger’s exact charges has not been released at this time.

Sheriff Tony Helms says this operation resulted from a narcotics investigation between his department, the ADTEF, and the Macon County Sheriff’s Office in North Carolina.
