Paulk was not home when the warrant was served, deputies said. Authorities arrested Ronnie Reynolds, 37, of Ardmore and charged him with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and loitering at a known drug house, the newspaper reported. Reynolds was later released from the Limestone County Jail on $4,000 bond, according to the News Courier.
Deputies said they learned Paulk kept an "attack squirrel" inside the apartment and fed it meth, the newspaper reported. An animal control deputy contacted the Alabama Game and Fish Division of the Department of Correction.
An official from the Game and Fish agency said it was illegal to own a squirrel as a pet in Alabama and recommended releasing the animal, the News Courier reported.
The animal was set free, the newspaper reported.
