A drug investigation led authorities to track down two county residents for selling drugs out of a county home.
Franklin County Sheriff's office investigators said Larry Hallman, 38, of 2515 Alabama 75 in Phil Campbell and Jocelynn Lavon James, 30, of 3618 Alabama 75 in Phil Campbell were taken into custody Thursday and both charged with possession of a controlled substance.
Authorities said Hallman has also been charged with conspiracy to commit a drug crime and endangering the welfare of a three year-old child.
Investigators with the Franklin County Sheriff's office and ABI officials had been working on the case and said they found pills on Hallman during a traffic stop which led authorities to get a search warrant for Hallman's residence.
Authorities said James was also caught with several different kinds of pills.
Officials said multiple pills and an admission of selling drugs out of Hallman's residence was taken during the investigation.
Both are currently being held at the Franklin County Jail.
