JACKSON COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) — Two women were arrested in Hollywood following an investigation into the use of narcotics, according to local authorities.
On September 6, Captain McCarver with the Hollywood Police Department (HPD) was on normal patrol and conducting business checks when he pulled into one of them and noticed two employees outside.
