Walker County Courthouse

The Walker County Grand Jury indicted 25 people on various drug-related charges during its September session last week. 

Most of the 31 total indictments included charges for methamphetamine possession, which included the indictments of Justin Holden and Mariah Pelikan from a 2019 traffic stop.

According to police records, deputies executed a traffic stop in the 3800 block of Hwy. 19 on Feb. 26, 2019, and quickly noticed the smell of marijuana coming from the vehicle. Upon a search deputies were able to locate a plastic container in the backseat of the vehicle with approximately 13 ounces of methamphetamines.

Holden and Pelikan were arrested and last week were indicted for manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance. The exact felony charge has not yet been identified by the Walker County District Attorney’s Office.
