Another concerned citizen's tip has led to a drug arrest in Kellyton.
Coosa County Investigator Chris Vinson said a search warrant was
served at a home in Hillside Trailer Park that led to the arrest of
Miranda Jane Hutchins Sunday night.

Hutchins, 30, is charged with possession of the controlled substance
crack cocaine, possession of marijuana in the second degree and
possession of drug paraphernalia.

"The search produced 14.6 grams of crack cocaine with a street value
of $1,500, a small amount of marijuana valued at $20 and drug
paraphernalia," Vinson said.

Coosa County law enforcement is pleased citizens are helping clean up
the streets.

"Our citizens are our eyes and ears. We can't be everywhere all the
time," said Coosa County Sheriff Ricky L. Owens. "But our citizens can
monitor the activity in the communities where they live. When they see
something out of the ordinary, we want to know," he said.

According to Vinson, Hutchins was transported to the county jail and
placed under $75,000 bond.
