Two in E. Brewton net drug charges


February 7, 2019

An East Brewton cop witnessing a potential drug deal and a traffic stop led to two people being arrested on drug charges that included methamphetamine and spice.

Edward Eugene Lowery, 40, 1406 Dailey St., East Brewton, was charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance (spice) and Nichole Elizabeth Miller, 38, 2119 Karlburg St., Pensacola, was charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance (meth) in arrests made Feb. 4.

According to reports released by the East Brewton Police Department, Cpl. D.J. Hodges pulled Lowery over on Shad Street after witnessing what he felt was a drug transaction.

A search of the vehicle revealed a rolled spice cigarette under the driver's seat, which resulted in Lowery's arrest. He was transported to the Escambia County Detention Center and jailed on $10,000 bond.

On the same day, Cpl. Hodges pulled over a green Saturn with no tag and identified the driver as Miller. Hodges reported he smelled the odor of marijuana when he approached the vehicle and noted Miller gave him a consent to search her vehicle.

The report notes Hodges found a small green pouch between the driver's seat and center console that contained meth.

Miller was also transported to the detention center and jailed on $5,000 bond.
