ALABASTER – A 36-year-old Alabaster man is being held in the Shelby County Jail without bond after he was arrested on his third set of drug charges since May.


The Alabaster Police Department and the Shelby County Drug Enforcement Task Force arrested Adam Blake Mullins, who lists an address on Eighth Street Southwest, on charges of second-degree possession of marijuana, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia on Dec. 17.

The most recent charges came when he allegedly was found in possession of marijuana, 2.58 grams of cocaine, 0.12 grams of LSD, 3.18 grams of methamphetamine, 1.3 grams of crushed Xanax and a digital scale with marijuana residue at his residence.

Mullins’ arrest came a few months after he was arrested by the Drug Enforcement Task Force and charged with two counts of selling cocaine on June 18. He allegedly sold cocaine on April 20 and April 27.

When he was arrested in June, he was out on bond on charges of trafficking methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance, second-degree possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, which were brought against him on May 2.

In the May arrest, Drug Enforcement Task Force Commander Clay Hammac said Mullins was in possession of multiple assault rifles, other firearms and munitions during the alleged drug sales.

Because he was out on bond for the charges brought against him earlier this year when he was arrested on Dec. 17, his bond was revoked, and he is now set to appear in Shelby County District Court on Jan. 30, 2019, for a hearing in front of Judge Daniel Crowson.
