Drug suspect not employee of Limestone County FOP

By Sheryl Marsh · 340-2437

A Limestone County Fraternal Order of Police official said a woman whom Decatur police arrested on drug charges does not work for the organization.

Marilyn Lynn Stowe listed FOP in Athens as her employer when she was booked into the Morgan County Jail on two counts of distribution of a controlled substance Friday.

Kay Worsham, secretary-treasurer of Limestone FOP, said Stowe is likely working as a caller for a company that’s conducting a fundraiser for the organization.

“She does not work for the FOP,” Worsham said. “We have a fundraiser going right now, and she could be a caller for that. I will contact the company that is doing it for us and give them this information, and
she won’t work for them after that.

“The company that does the fundraiser for us has been doing it for many years, and they are good. They screen people as best as they can.”

She said the Georgia-based company is reputable and would not tolerate criminal activity from callers or any affiliate.

“They try to hire local people to work, and they do a good job,” Worsham said.

She said Sunday that she did not know for sure that Stowe was even a caller, but she would try to get that information Monday.

Stowe, 40, of Trinity, is free from jail on bonds totaling $3,000.
