Mickey Paulk is wanted in Limestone County on drug charges authorities say

Limestone County narcotics investigators arrested one man and are looking for another after they executed a search warrant Monday that yielded meth, drug paraphernalia, body armor and a squirrel.

After the search, deputies arrested 37-year-old Ronnie Reynolds of Ardmore, Alabama and charged him with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and loitering at a known drug house.

Deputies said they got a tip that Paulk was using the animal to attack, and giving it meth to keep it aggressive.

Authorities urge anyone with information on the whereabouts of Paulk - who's wanted on multiple charges including possession of a controlled substance - to contact the sheriff's office at 256-232-0111. He was later released from Limestone County Jail on $4,000 bond, Young confirms.

Ousted Ex-Egyptian President Morsi Dies After Court Hearing
The former President's death has raised questions about his treatment in jail where he was in solitary confinement. Morsi appeared "pale and gaunt in more than one court session", the paper noted.

"The squirrel was released into a wooded area on the advice of Game and Fish wardens".

Mickey Paulk, 35, of Limestone County in north Alabama, is alleged to have kept the rodent drugged up in his apartment so it could serve as his "attack squirrel", said the release.

A spokesman for the Limestone County Sheriff's Office said there was no way the animal could have been tested for meth before being released back into the wild.

A man who is accused of keeping an "attack squirrel" locked in cage and feeding it methamphetamine so it stays aggressive has appeared on video denying the allegations while holding what he claims is the same animal. He also noted that officers with the Game and Fish Division confirmed it is illegal to own a pet squirrel.
