    How about “tampering with or destruction of evidence?” I’m surprised the police left that charge off. Also, the last sentence should say, “Their bond…”

    Question for any Ana voters here. If she was doing such a great job getting all these drugs out of the county, why are there still so many drug busts?

  • K

    Because there are that many people making/using drugs not only in Morgan County but in North Alabama. It’s that bad.

      So we should continue to lock them all up in the jail cells we don’t have spending the money we don’t have either?

        What exactly do you want? Your first post criticizes Ms. Franklin because there was a meth lab that wasn’t discovered until today. Now that these criminals have been arrested, you want to know if they should be locked up because we don’t have the money for it. You are a first-class idiot.
