Wade said Yoder had 6.85 grams of heroin, 19 grams of methamphetamine, and 3.6 grams of marijuana. The drugs will be sent to a forensic lab to officially be weighed, the sheriff said.

Under Alabama law, anyone in possession of more than 4 grams of heroin is trafficking. Anyone found with more than 8 grams of meth but less than 28 grams is in possession of the drug with the intent to distribute, according to the law.

Yoder was subsequently charged with trafficking heroin, distribution of meth, first-degree possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
