Store clerk charged after deputies seize THC products from Franklin County convenience store

FRANKLIN CO., Ala. (WAFF) – A store clerk has been arrested on multiple counts after THC products were seized from a Chevron in Franklin County.

According to the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, a search warrant was executed by investigators and patrol deputies at Chevron located on Highway 24 west near Russellville.
