CULLMAN –  Two area women were arrested recently, in two separate and unrelated incidents, for meth distribution.

The first incident occurred on Oct. 7, when the Cullman Police Department’s Sgt. Chris Thomason, Investigator Justin Craft, and Officers Trey Higginbotham, Cole Kelley and Dustin Colburn conducted an undercover operation in which Melissa Kay Rock, 42, of Huntsville allegedly sold a half ounce (approximately 14 grams) of methamphetamine to the officers. 

Rock was arrested for unlawful distribution of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. At the time of her arrest, Rock was also served with two outstanding felony warrants for two additional counts of unlawful distribution of a controlled substance. The CPD said the outstanding warrants stemmed from a previous sale of meth to the same undercover officers.

Rock, who has been living in Cullman for a short while, was placed in the Cullman County Detention Center and has since made bond.

The second incident occurred on Oct. 11, when Thomason, Higginbotham, Colburn and Kelley arrested Megan Nail James, 33, of Cullman, who is also alleged to have sold methamphetamine to undercover CPD officers on two separate occasions.

James was out on bond for a previous arrest when she was arrested on Oct. 11. This time she was charged with two counts of unlawful distribution of a controlled substance.

James remains incarcerated in the Cullman County Detention Center on a $60,000 property bond.
