TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) -

The West Alabama Narcotics Task Force responded to complaints that drugs were being sold from the OK Tire Store on Stillman Boulevard.

They arrested the former manager, Hubert Scarbrough, last week.

Scarbrough, 47, is charged with marijuana trafficking.

"The West Alabama Narcotics Task Force had been conducting an investigation for about six months into some illegal activity that had been taking part at the business," said Lt. Teena Richardson.

Scarbrough is the only employee charged in the case.

According to court papers obtained, he admitted having three to four pounds of marijuana hidden under a house at a another location.

They recovered the drugs and he was booked on $1.5 million bond.

The tire store closed after Scarbrough's arrest.

The new management declined to speak on camera about what may have been going on before they bought the business. They plan on reopening soon and say that the business will not just be related to tires, but they plan on having a full scale garage in the next few days.

    LSU went back to work this week in preparation for the Citrus Bowl against Notre Dame. A win would be nice, but this is also a chance to get some freshman playing time to get ready for 2018. Well it'll come in practice only. "Those guys will get more reps. So I'll give them a couple of more reps at the end of a team period. It's sending the wrong message to our football team. It's all focus on winning the game. Exactly what we did last year," said LSU Head Coach Ed Org...More >>
