MORGAN COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - Morgan County Sheriff Ana Franklin reports that a man brought into the county jail on Thursday tried to bring in 11 grams of methamphetamine.

When he was searched during booking, a detention officer found he had two plastic baggies containing a crystal substance believed to be meth, Franklin said. A drug agent field-tested the substance and confirmed it as meth.

Walls was subsequently charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute. Bond was set at $5,000.
