Allen, 48, and Sabrae Hadley, 26, both of Atmore, were arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance, chemical endangerment of a child, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana II. McMann said the chemical endangerment of a child charge was due to children being present while drugs were allegedly being ingested and narcotics left on furniture the children had access to.
