A police raid on an Alabama drug den resulted in the rescue of the occupants "attack squirrel." Ronnie Reynolds, 37, was arrested at the Athens apartment.

But the police are still searching for the alleged 'caretaker' of the attack squirrel - 35 year old Mickey Paulk.

Police were informed of the squirrel's presence prior to the raid, and also advised that Paulk fed methamphetamine to the squirrel to keep it aggressive.

It is illegal to keep a squirrel in Alabama.

But, given that the raid turned up meth, drug paraphernalia, and body armor, the squirrel related charges are the least of Reynolds's and Paulk's concerns.

The squirrel was released into the wild, as the sheriff says there is no safe way to test it for methamphetamine use.

So if you are in Alabama - beware of a tweaker squirrel running about!

An “attack squirrel” was rescued when sheriff’s deputies seized methamphetamine, ammunition and more at a north Alabama home during a Monday drug bust, authorities said.
Deputies served a search warrant at an apartment in the Athens area of Limestone County. One man was arrested on drug charges, but Limestone County deputies say they are still looking for 35-year-old Mickey Paulk, the resident of the apartment.

“Prior to the search warrant, investigators were informed that Mickey Paulk kept an ‘attack squirrel’ inside his apartment, and that Paulk fed the squirrel meth to keep it aggressive,” said sheriff’s spokesman Stephen Young in a news release.
Young said deputies found the squirrel inside a cage. Upon advice of state conservation officials, Young said, deputies released the squirrel into a nearby wooded area.
“There was no safe way to test the squirrel for meth,” said Sheriff Mike Blakely’s office in the press release.
Young said deputies seized meth, drug paraphernalia and body armor in the apartment. Paulk, who wasn’t home during the search, is wanted on warrants charging him with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and a firearms possession charge.

"Investigators spotted Mickey Paulk while doing surveillance at America’s Best Value Inn in Killen. Paulk fled on a stolen motorcycle and rammed an investigator’s vehicle during a brief chase before he was arrested, according to authorities. "

"The Alabama Game and Fish Division of the Department of Conservation issued a warrant for Paulk’s arrest."


That's like when the IRS popped Capone for tax evasion! OK, maybe not as glamorous...


Hat tip to @Sugar Cookie for the update!
