Probe nets 26 arrests                       

26 of 29 suspects are in custody today following a nearly three year local and federal undercover investigation. And a majority of those offenders are residents of East Anniston. U.S. Attorney Alice H. Martin joined local officials for a joint press conference monday morning to announce the conclusion of “Operation Rose Wood.” Special Agent Greg Borland says the sting operation, which began in November 2005, was successfully carried out Friday with the help of local officials.  Officers executed warrants at homes on Rocky Hollow Road in East Anniston taking numerous suspected crack-cocaine dealers into custody early Friday morning on federal and state drug charges. Calhoun-Cleburne Drug Task Force Commander Richard Smith says the arrests will most likely cut down on violent crimes in the area.   Indicted on charges of intent to distribute and the distribution of crack cocaine were anniston residents: Maurice Kirby, Roosevelt Adamson Senior, James Munford, Fannie Jenkins, Tito Jones, Jankowicz McElderry, Brenda Pittman, Daryl Thompson, Penelope Williams, Anthony Woods, and Earnest Wynn. Maurice Price from Georgia was also indicted on the same charges. Six separate indictments stemming from the same investigation were also unsealed Friday, with the following five Anniston residents charged with federal drug trafficking and firearms offenses: Charles Hobdy, James Askew III, Linda Finch, Jamar Clay, Rodney Cunningham, and Shaundricka Jones. Also indicted was Cedric Trammell from Randolph County. The following Anniston residents were charged in State Court for Possession and/or Distribution of Crack Cocaine: Gloria Mimms, Shedrick Kelley, Roosevelt Adamson, Andreanna McLester, Exileena Clark, Marcedric Kirby, and Gwendolyn McGrue. Prosecutors also intend to seek the forfeiture of nine properties in Anniston and a black Dodge Charger. 



Monk seeking conditions 

The Anniston city council may be headed for another showdown over extending the contract of city manager George Monk.  Monk said Monday that he would accept a six-month contract extension if the City Council agrees to a condition. In a written statement, Monk said he had communicated to Mayor Chip Howell an "avenue" by which he would accept the offer. He said Howell was discussing the condition with council members.   While he would not comment on the condition, Monk did say that it was not a re-negotiation of his existing contract. Councilman Jeff Fink said he would have no problem granting Monk's request. He said it was a routine personnel request. Councilman Ben Little, who has consistently opposed any extension for Monk, said he would also oppose Monk's request.  Monk's contract ends June 30. The City Council voted to offer Monk the six-month extension May 27, after the council was unable to agree on a one year extension sought by Mayor Howell and Fink. Councilmen Stan Bennett and Little opposed any contract extension. Councilman Herbert Palmore offered the compromise saying he could not commit to a year but wanted Monk to oversee the budget process and work through the summer's election season, suggesting a six-month extension. That extension passed on a three to two vote, with Bennett and Little voting "no."  


Convicted murderer dies in prison 

A Talladega County man convicted of the 1986 capital murder of a young Sycamore woman has died on death row while awaiting a new trial.  Brian Corbett, a spokesman for the Alabama Department of Corrections, said 50 year old  Shep Wilson Jr.,  died Thursday at William E. Donaldson Correctional Facility in Bessemer. Wilson had been on death row since Nov. 26, 1986, after he was convicted of the capital murder of 19 year old  Monica Cook,  of Sycamore. Wilson was convicted of abducting Cook Jan. 27, 1986, while she was working at the Shell Discount Food Mart in Sylacauga.  Evidence showed that Cook was taken by force from the store, and Wilson raped, beat and choked her to death, dumping her body on the side of a road.  Cook’s body was found on Riser’s Mill Road, just off Talladega County 139, three days after she was abducted.
