Police Seize Drugs, Cash From Bama Player’s Room
Authorities seized marijuana and more than $4,000 in cash from an Alabama football player’s dorm room.
Court papers filed online Monday say agents with the West Alabama Narcotics Task Force found 112 grams of marijuana and the money Oct. 7 in the room of reserve tight end Kurt Freitag.
The filings indicate agents witnessed and recorded a drug transaction involving Freitag, who had been identified by a confidential informant. Tuscaloosa County District Attorney Lyn Head filed a request to have the $4,661 forfeited to the state.
The court documents don’t indicate if any charges have been filed against Freitag.
Tuscaloosa Police spokesman Sgt. Brent Blankley declined to comment because it’s an ongoing investigation.
Freitag, a sophomore from Buford, Georgia, has not played this season.
A university spokeswoman declined to comment.
