COLUMBIANA – A 35-year-old Alabaster man and a 49-year-old Alabaster woman are facing multiple drug-related charges after they were arrested in an Oct. 10 sting by the Shelby County Drug Enforcement Task Force.

The Task Force arrested Christopher Edward Osborn and Lisa Kelly Miller, both of who lists addresses on Peacock Drive in Alabaster, and charged them each with counts of first-degree possession of marijuana, unlawful possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
