The old saying that crime doesn't pay still holds true. Wednesday, the West Alabama Narcotics Task Force seized 41 pounds of marijuana, other drugs and $18,173 in cash along with 2 vehicles in Northport.

Authorities say that this was the result of a 2 month investigation. Arrested was Christopher Williams. He was charged with trafficking in cocaine and trafficking in marijuana.

Tuscaloosa police Lt. Teena Richardson said that Task force agents carried out a search warrant Wednesday at a home in the 300 block of 29th Street, where they found a haul of drugs and cash.
