A Springville man was arrested last Tuesday on drug-related charges stemming from incidences at the Farm Ministries facility in the Stewartville community.
Sheriff Michael Howell reported that on January 24 Deputy Scott was dispatched to Farm Ministries on County Road 74. He said they had received a call from a coordinator stating that an individual there was in possession of illegal narcotics.
Upon investigation, it was determined that Clyde Lamp IV, 20 years old of Springville, was selling and sharing those narcotics with in-patients at the facility. Farm Ministries is a 12-step Christian program that is designed to “provide residential rehabilitation services.”
Howell stated that Lamp admitted to being in possession of those items. He was charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance and one count of minor in possession of a vape.
Howell said that Lamp was charged with that because of him providing those vapes to others at the facility.
Lamp’s bond was set at $10,300. As of press time he remained in custody at the Coosa County Jail awaiting trial.
