NORTH SHELBY – Investigators with the Shelby County Drug Enforcement Task Force arrested a 27-year-old North Shelby man on Friday, Dec. 20, and charged him with multiple drug offenses.



SCDETF investigators responded to information gathered from court compliance deputies, following a physical altercation with a defendant, Michael Alexander Dyer, and a court officer. The narcotics investigators confirmed information that Dyer was allegedly involved in the sale and distribution of illegal drugs, including prescription pills and marijuana.

During the execution of a search warrant at Dyer’s residence, located on Cahaba Valley Road in North Shelby, authorities found marijuana, Xanax, controlled prescription stimulant and anabolic steroids among other things.

Dyer is charged with probation violation, second-degree assault, first-degree unlawful possession of marijuana, two counts of unlawful possession of controlled substance and two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia. The assault charge stems from Dyer’s altercation with the court officer. Dyer remained in Shelby County Jail as of Friday, Dec. 27, on bonds totaling $42,000.

Also as a result of the search warrant, Dyer’s roommate, Travis Wade Chapman, 42, was arrested hours later during his probation check-in and charged with first-degree unlawful possession of marijuana, unlawful possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. Chapman was released from $21,000 Shelby County Jail on Saturday, Dec. 21.
