Sipsey Man Arrested In Bremen On Dope & Stolen Weapons Charges

by | Sep 7, 2017 | County News, Crime, Cullman, Public Safety

A Walker County man was pulled over Wednesday along County Road 109 in Bremen on a traffic stop.

During the interaction, Cullman Narcotics Enforcement Team (CNET) deputies realized the driver had active, open warrants with the Cullman County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO). The subject was immediately arrested for those warrants.

His vehicle was then searched.

Deputies discovered:

• Heroin
• Methamphetamine
• Diazepam (Xanax)
• Marijuana
• Drug Paraphernalia
• Firearms (3)

Two of the firearms had already been reported as stolen.

JOE BENNY REESE (58) Sipsey was charged with the following:

• Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance (3 counts)
• Unlawful Possession of Marijuana First
• Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
• Carrying a Concealed Weapon without a Permit
• Receiving Stolen Property – 2nd Degree (2 counts)

These charges stack on top of his warrant for Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

Reese is currently being held at the Cullman County Detention Center on an $26,700 bond.

Cullman County Sheriff Matt Gentry had these thoughts following the arrest:

“I am glad this suspect is behind bars. We caught him before he was able to come into Cullman County and sell all these drugs especially the heroin which is a growing problem. I am also glad we were able to safely recover these pistols and hopefully, we can return them to their owners. I would like to thank CNET for the good job they did on this arrest.”
