Following a six-month investigation the Mobile Federal Bureau of Investigation Safe Streets Task Force announced today it has served 13 arrest warrants in south Baldwin County and the Florida panhandle. Of those warrants served, five people were arrested and authorities announced one man, Adam Allen Cain, has been charged with drug and firearms offenses.
According to an indictment filed Jan. 27, Cain faces charges of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute and possession of a firearm in furtherance of committing a crime. A second man named in the indictment, Kenneth David Brink, 39, of Foley, faces similar charges and an additional charge of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.
According to the indictment, the pair conspired with each other and unnamed persons to distribute more than 50 grams of methamphetamine.
At a press conference today in Summerdale, U.S. Attorney’s Office Criminal Chief Vicki Davis said Cain faces federal charges and a maximum sentence of 10 years to life imprisonment.
Law enforcement officials have not released the names of others arrested in the sweep.
The Mobile SSTF focuses investigative efforts on violent drug distribution organizations in the Mobile area.
“Justice is a team sport and we are out there to serve justice,” Robert Lasky, Special Agent in Charge of the Mobile FBI, said. “This team is coming after the criminals, drug dealers and violent drug dealers in Baldwin County.”
The task force includes officers, agents and detectives from the FBI, Foley Police Department, Daphne Police Department, Gulf Shores Police Department, Mobile Police Department, Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA) and Homeland Security Investigations.
“There is no resource we won’t tap into and no cooperation we won’t pursue to make sure that Baldwin County and our surrounding areas are safe,” Baldwin County Sheriff Huey “Hoss” Mack said. “We will do everything we can to try to eradicate the drug dealers and those who are creating these issues in our county.”
Adding to that, Foley Police Chief David Wilson said his department would be vigilant and committed in its efforts to eradicate drug issues in Baldwin County.
“If you bring drugs into our community and you sell them to our citizens, we will get you,” Wilson said.
According to the SSTF, the task force counts 72 arrests, 36 federal drug seizures, 31 federal indictments, 31 weapons seizures and eight asset seizures in its 2015 list of accomplishments.
