Two face drug charges
By SUE WATSON
Two Marshall County men were arrested last week on drug charges, according to sheriff Kenny Dickerson.
A search warrant was executed at the residence of Wally Barkley, 53, of 10 Lake Hill Cove, Byhalia, Friday, May 28, he said. Investigators seized about a pound of marijuana, $10,000 in cash, and a .22 rifle. Barkley was charged with possession of marijuana and Xanax with intent to sell, felony possession of a firearm, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Barkley was on probation with the State of Tennessee at the time of his arrest, the sheriff said.
Also arrested at the residence was Brandon Anderson, 27, of 247 Anderson Lane, Red Banks. He was charged with possession of Xanax with intent to sell and released after posting a $5,000 secure bond, Dickerson said.
Barkley posted a $20,000 secure bond on charges stemming from the May 28 search warrant. Officers were again called to 10 Lake Hill Cove about 10:40 p.m. May 29, and Barkley was again transported to the Marshall County Jail, the sheriff said.
Additional charges are being filed June 1 regarding the incident surrounding the Saturday night call, he said.
A bond revocation petition is being filed in Marshall County Circuit Court regarding the May 29 incident, which could lead to the revocation of Barkley’s $20,000 bond in Marshall County.
