On The Road With MCSO Special Ops

On The Road With MCSO Special Ops

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE COUNTY, ALABAMA -
It's a day in the life of the Mobile County Sheriff's Department Special Ops unit. The vests are on and it's time to hit the street.
 
Covering Mobile County and Interstate 10, these guys are working to bust drug trafficking. However, drugs aren't all they come across during their patrols.
 
A traffic grant this week puts more deputies on the road and you never know what they'll find.
 
A routine traffic stop for a vehicle with no tag resulted in the arrest of John Michael Taylor. Taylor had a warrant out for his arrest. Deputies in Choctaw County were looking for Taylor in connection to a theft of property charge.
  
"We're typically out here looking for seatbelt tickets, child restraints, speeders, just pretty much everybody that's not obeying the law," said Deputy James Gazzier.
 
From minor offenses like expired tags, to a DUI arrest. 56-year-old Robert Weaver was driving while under the influence in Mobile County with his 13-year-old grandson in the passenger seat Monday afternoon.
 
According to jail records, Weaver has been arrested 3 times in the last 14 years for DUI.
 
Drugs are a big problem in Mobile County, too.  
 
"You've got meth, marijuana, pills are making a big comeback," said Gazzier.
