Two women were arrested Friday night after Morgan County deputies say one woman was hiding behind a fake wall to avoid detection.

On Friday, January 10, 2020, Morgan County Deputy Sheriffs arrested two women on warrants at a house in Somerville.

Lyndsey Bennett, 28, of Hartselle was arrested after being located in a homemade hiding spot with a fake wall on a felony probation revocation warrant for Chemical Endangerment of a Child.

Also arrested at the residence was Jody Maples, 47, of Hartselle on an outstanding traffic-related warrant through the Decatur Police Department.

Both were transported to the Morgan County Jail with bonds pending.

Both could face additional gun and drug-related charges.
