Gary E. Hall and Michelle L. Thompson are both charged with Possession of Meth with Intent to Sell, Possession of Schedule II Drugs, and Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

Both are being held in the Henry County Jail on a $27,000 bond each. They’ll appear Tuesday in Henry County General Sessions Court.
