Atmore Police Chief Chuck Brooks said following an investigation, agents with the Alabama Drug Enforcement Agency and officers with the Atmore Police Department executed the warrant on Nix's residence.

According to reports, when officers entered the apartment they found numerous plastic containers containing marijuana. Agents also found THC candy, lip balm and pre-rolled cigarettes, all containing marijuana. Officers also found digital scales commonly used to weigh marijuana and a torch lighter commonly used to smoke marijuana.

The trafficking charge stems from Alabama law of having in excess of 2.2 pounds of marijuana.

Brooks said after officers seized the drugs inside Nix's apartment and emptied the marijuana into bags they discovered it weighed more than the 2.2 pounds.
