Tuscumbia, Alabama
Drug Task Force



The Colbert County Drug Task Force has been in existence for over 20 years. The Task Force is composed of a Coordinator, Captain Curtis Burns; two agents, Agent Brad Hulsey and Agent Troy Seal; and one Administrative Assistant, Patricia Connell. The task force has a Board of Directors that consists of the District Attorney – director; the Sheriff – Assistant Director; and the Chief of Police from six police departments.

The task force agents work all of Colbert County (600 square miles) which includes the cities of Muscle Shoals, Sheffield, Tuscumbia, Cherokee, Leighton, and Littleville. The Task Force agents work closely with other law enforcement agencies concerning drug activity and any other criminal activity.

The Task Force has been involved in many high profile drug cases with federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies. Some of these cases have resulted in the seizure of kilos of cocaine, pounds of marijuana as well as numerous prescription drugs. The Task Force also takes part in marijuana eradications with state agencies where hundreds of marijuana plants have been eradicated.

The Colbert County Drug Task Force also is involved in several community related/educational programs throughout the area. Task Force agents have spoken to many schools, churches, and civic organization, as well as many other organizations that were interested in learning about current drug trends as well as the dangers of drugs.

With the increase and production of methamphetamine, the task force does a great deal of training and classes concerning the dangers of meth labs.
