Allen was arrested after an overdose death in Madison County. Madison police then found Allen as the source of the drugs. Police recovered more than 150 counterfeit pain pills that possibly contained fentanyl.

The pills were made to look like Oxycodone.

Madison-Rankin Counties District Attorney Bubba Bramlett said Allen is a habitual offender and subsequent drug offender who could get a maximum sentence without eligibility for early release or parole. He is scheduled to be sentenced Friday.
