A 43-year-old Tuscaloosa woman was arrested and charged with 11 felonies after narcotics agents reportedly found a large stockpile of illegal drugs in her home on 24th Street Monday.

Stephanie Taylor, a spokesperson for the Tuscaloosa Police Department, said their agents executed a search warrant at a home in the 2600 block of 24th Street Monday.

Inside, they allegedly recovered a pound of marijuana, three pounds of edibles containing THC, a small amount of cocaine and hundreds of prescription pills, including 275 MDMA, better known as ecstasy, 40 oxycodone and 25 morphine pills.

The agents also seized $700 cash in the residence.

The suspect, Victoria Lashun Yelder, was charged with possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance, trafficking morphine, trafficking Oxycodone, two counts of possession of a controlled substance, first-degree possession of marijuana and five counts of failure to affix a tax stamp.

She was booked in the Tuscaloosa County Jail Monday and is being held on a combined bond set at a total of $167,500 for all charges.

Her arrest follows a similarly large drug bust early Monday that yielded more than a pound of marijuana and a large amount of deadly and addictive fentanyl.
