Here are a few of the criminal law stories that occurred around the state of Alabama this past week:
- The West Alabama Task Force had been conducting a two-month investigation on Coker resident Thomas Bradley Walker, who they suspected of illegal drug trafficking. Last Friday, Walker led police on an early morning chase as he tried to get rid of evidence. Police eventually seized a large amount of methamphetamine ICE, a stole AR-15 and an undisclosed amount of cash. Walker faces multiple possession and trafficking charges and is being held on $529,000 bond.
- An 18-year-old male, Monsure Davis, has been charged with capital murder for the shooting death of a Wenonah High School student, allegedly because of a disagreement over a girl. The shots that killed the victim came from a stolen car driven by Davis and another suspect, who has been charged with first-degree theft of property but not in connection with the victim’s death. Davis is being held on a $250,000 bond.
