As the officers identified themselves, Hall and Russell both reached for their waistbands. The cops drew their guns and demanded the duo to put their hands on the dashboard. They did.
The report says Russell had been trying to hide a blue pill bottle and some cash in his pants. The pill bottle held a prescription for Aprazolam. Records showed Russell filled the prescription one day earlier.
Searching Russell’s Mercury, officers also found some marijuana. Russell said he would not talk with police, because he was on probation for armed robbery.
So, police interviewed Hall.
“Hall at first told me that she was meeting Russell to discuss a new tattoo,” an officer wrote in the report.
She then admitted she called Russell, known to her as “Zombie,” and arranged to buy 28 of his Aprazolam pills.
“Me and Zombie are good friends,” Hall said, according to the report. “He was helping me out.”
The recent calls on Hall’s cell phone showed she called Russell, named “Zombie” in her contacts, less than an hour before they both landed in jail.
