Man arrested on six charges four days after publicly criticizing Etowah County sheriff
A 20-year-old man was arrested last week and charged with drug trafficking four days after AL.com published comments he made criticizing Etowah County Sheriff Todd Entrekin.
Matthew Qualls questioned why Entrekin paid him to mow the lawn at his personal home in 2015 using taxpayer funds allocated for the feeding of inmates in the county jail. Entrekin confirmed that he personally pocketed some of the funds.
As of Tuesday morning, Qualls faced six charges and was being held on $55,000 bail in the Etowah County jail, which Entrekin oversees. Qualls had not been arrested before, according to state records.
Police say the arrest began with an anonymous tip.
Officers with the Rainbow City Police Department and the Etowah County Drug Enforcement Unit arrested Qualls on Feb. 22 after responding to an anonymous call reporting the odor of marijuana emanating from within a Rainbow City apartment, according to the police report.
