Local Residents Arrested After Drug Task Force Raid
July 1, 2009
Two people have been arrested on narcotics charges following the execution of a drug task force search warrant in Canoe, Alabama, just a short distance across the state line from North Escambia.
Scottie Ladon Smith, 39, and Marilyn Natasha Satterwhite, 34, were arrested by the 21st Judicial Drug Task Force at a residence in Canoe. During the execution of the search warrant, task force agents said they recovered methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.
Both Smith and Satterwhite were booked into the Escambia County (Ala.) Detention Center on charges of unlawful possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
The search warrant was executed by the Escambia County (Ala.) Sheriff’s Department, the Atmore Police Department, and agents from the Baldwin County Narcotics Unit. Task force agents said that the arrests were part of an ongoing investigation.
Smith is currently awaiting trial in Escambia County, Florida, for the October 2008 shooting of Jedd Jackson Grimes near Bratt. Grimes was discovered shot in car outside the EMS substation in Century the night of October 20. Smith was arrested later that night for the shooting that at Smith’s residence on Highway 168 in Bratt. He was charged with aggravated battery and shooting into the vehicle.
