5 suspects arraigned on meth lab charges
The five home burglary suspects arrested by the Obion County Sheriff’s Department last week were arraigned Friday afternoon in General Sessions Court, with two of the suspects given $50,000 bonds each and the other three suspects given $40,000 bonds.
Arrested last week were Tommy Dwayne Griffin, 31, of Samburg; Sandra Jean Walley, 36, of Tiptonville; Charles Dean Jr., 28, of Samburg; Bennie Armstead Smith, 34, of Hornbeak; and Hulen Leon Thompson, 42, of Samburg. Griffin and Ms. Walley were each given $50,000 bonds, while Dean, Smith and Thompson were each given $40,000 bonds by General Sessions Judge Jimmy Smith.
All five are facing meth-related charges after deputies and investigators discovered an active meth lab in Samburg while they were serving a search warrant on Griffin Street. The search warrant was issued in connection with a rash of residential burglaries in the county. Charges are still pending in that case, while the five suspects will have their initial court appearance on the drug charges Thursday morning.
All five remain jailed at the Obion County Law Enforcement Complex, according to a sheriff’s department spokesman. Published in The Messenger 5.7.12
