Store clerks face charges
By SUE WATSON
The new Marshall County Metro Narcotics Task Force made its first arrests inside the city limits of Holly Springs Friday, Feb. 15, according to police chief William Hollowell.
He said four store clerks were arrested at two separate businesses and charged with possession and sale of controlled substances.
The arrests were all involving the sale of Spice or synthetic marijuana products, Hollowell said. The stocks of these substances were seized as were some paraphernalia, he said.
The arrests were made around 7 p.m. at Sonya’s Tobacco and Beer on Memphis Street and at Fly With The Eagle Exxon station at the intersection of Martin Luther King Drive and West Woodward Avenue.
Tareq Al-Halemi, 34, of the 200 block of Martin Luther King Drive, and Nagi Al-Meami, 45, of the 200 block of Martin Luther King Drive, were arrested at the Fly With The Eagle Exxon and charged with illegal possession and sale of a controlled substance, Hollowell said. Al-Halemi bonded out Saturday at $5,000 and Al-Meami was released on $10,000 bond Saturday.
Hanmo Kang, 33, of the 100 block of South Memphis Street, and Trina Wilson, 37, of the 1100 block of Spruce Street, Hickory Flat, were arrested at Sonya’s and also charged with possession and sale of controlled substances, the chief said.
Kang and Wilson bonded out at $5,000 each Saturday.
The individuals were clerks or managers at the stores at the time of the arrests, Hollowell said.
Drug scales and other paraphernalia, such as glass pipes, were also seized during the Task Force investigation, he said.
Both stores reopened Saturday, he said.
