Two Shoals residents are facing drug charges and neglect charges after being stopped in a school parking lot.

On Tuesday afternoon, a Martin County Sheriff’s deputy noticed Jessica A. Gregory, 38, of Shoals was driving on US Hwy 50 while her license was suspended. 

Gregory was pulled over in the Shoals High School parking lot. A passenger in the vehicle was Jeremiah E. Jackson, 42, of Shoals. 

A search of the vehicle uncovered methamphetamine, marijuana, hypodermic needles and paraphernalia. Before the pair was transported to jail, a hidden container of cocaine was also discovered on Jackson. 

Gregory gave authorities consent to search her residence which resulted in the discovery of marijuana, methamphetamine, other controlled substances and paraphernalia. 

Gregory was charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, possession of paraphernalia, possession of hypodermic needles, possession of a controlled substance, neglect of a dependent and driving while suspended. 

Jackson was charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana, possession of hypodermic needles and neglect of a dependent. 

The fact that the arrests occurred on school property is considered an enhancing circumstance in each case.
