Two Franklin residents were arrested by Newnan Police authorities on methamphetamine charges, including one who attempted to flee and was hit with an electronic stun gun.
Frank James Dailey Jr., 34, was arrested on charges of possession of meth, possession of meth with intent and obstruction, according to Coweta County Jail records. Shena Michelle Noles, 40, was charged with possession of meth.
Newnan Police Department officers responded to an apartment on Jefferson Parkway on Tuesday, August 7, regarding a man attempting to climb the railing to an upstairs apartment.
Dailey flagged down one of the officers and said he was the one climbing the railing because his mother had locked her cell phone inside her daughter’s apartment and he was trying to retrieve it, officers reported.
An officer ran a background check on Dailey and was informed there was a warrant for his arrest for possession of meth with intent, the officer said, who then attempted to arrest Dailey.
Instead, Daily ran toward the apartment with two officers chasing him, the officer reported, adding Dailey was finally wrestled to the ground after he was hit with the stun gun.
The officers then approached Noles, who was sitting in a car in front of the apartment and told officers she had brought Dailey to the apartment, the officer reported.
She consented to a search of the car and officers found two quarter-sized bags with suspected meth, three used needles and a smoking pipe. Dailey and Noles were then taken to the jail. (Photo by Mugshots.com)
