The Wayne County Sheriff Drug Enforcement Unit and Wayne County Road Patrol Deputies searched the residence and located Lonnie “aka Noah” Christenson hid behind a refrigerator. Noah had warrants for Burglary, Accessory Before the Fact, and Receiving and Transferring Stolen Property.
The warrants were issued after a house was broke into in Prichard last week. Noah and his father, Lonnie Lee Christenson, were both charged during the investigation. Stolen property from the break in was recovered at their residence. Lonnie Lee Christenson was arrested Friday.
Lonnie “Noah” Christensen is also charged with Possession with Intent to Deliver Methamphetamine and Pseudoephedrine Altered. The Wayne County Sheriff Drug Enforcement Unit located a distribution quantity of Methamphetamine in Noah’s pocket.
Michael “Mikey” Pennington was arrested for (2) DRC revocations and Carl “Edmond” Mounts was arrested for a Probation Violation. Stolen property from a separate incident was also recovered from the trap house. The Fort Gay Police Department assisted.
