Bossier Sheriff Larry Deen says two Texas men were arrested over this past weekend on drug charges. 

Claude Neal Hall, 50, and Gregory Scott Jones, 42, both of Waskom, were taken into custody after Hall was stopped for speeding—51 miles per hour in a 35-mile-per-hour zone on Wemple Road. 

When Bossier Sheriff’s deputies made contact with Hall, he admitted that his driver’s license was suspended and he appeared to be very nervous. 

When deputies searched Hall’s vehicle, they found one bag (27.2 grams) of methamphetamine under the passenger seat of the vehicle.  Hall told the deputies he did not know anything about the meth. 

Hall and Jones, who was a passenger in Hall’s vehicle, were transported to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility and booked.  Hall was charged with possession with intent to distribute meth, driving under suspension and speeding.  Jones was charged with possession with intent to distribute meth and possession of marijuana. 

Hall’s bond was set at $35,550 and Jones’ was set at $35,500.
