On Monday, an Alabaster School Resource Officer got in touch with the Shelby County Drug Enforcement Task Force about a narcotics investigation at Thompson High School.

When investigators arrived, they came across 18-year-old Kamau Diandi Greene of Alabaster. According to the task force, Greene had Ecstasy, Psilocybin mushroom powder, Xanax, drug paraphernalia, a quarter pound of Marijuana, and three firearms, one of which was stolen out of Calera, in his possession.

"Anytime there is an opportunity to remove illicit drugs from our community, then we do so deliberately and unapologetically," Capt. Clay Hammac, the Commander of the Shelby County Drug Enforcement Task Force said. "We hope this can evolve into a teaching point, a prevention effort for our local parents to make time to have this conversation. Hopefully, this will be a conversation starter at the dinner table tonight or tomorrow where mom's and dad's can sit down with their student and talk about some of the dangers with these more illicit drugs."

Mr. Greene has been released from Shelby County Jail on a $13,000 bond, and he has been charged with fourth degree receiving stolen property, carrying a pistol without a license, and multiple drug related charges.

According to the Drug Enforcement Task Force, this is the second drug enforcement action on the campus of Thompson High School within two years.

"I think what needs to be spotlighted here is the partnership between the Alabaster School Resource officers, as well as the teachers and school administration at Thompson High School," Capt. Clay Hammac, the Commander of the Shelby County Drug Enforcement Task Force said. "I think what our parents need to see is that this demonstrates that the leadership in our school system, as well as our local law enforcement in Alabaster have a zero tolerance policy in place here. They were working in partnership and aggressively to make sure that they are maintaining a safe and comfortable learning environment for our students."
