Two Hilton Head Island women were arrested Thursday on charges of dealing methamphetamine after one fell from their home's roof, according to a Beaufort County Sheriff's Office news release Tuesday.

At about 1 a.m., deputies called to Caesar Place on the island's north end found Tina York, 37, with minor injuries that were the result of a fall from the second story of her residence, the release said. York made several statements about killing people in her residence, and she appeared to be disoriented and confused, the release added.

Deputies then talked to Tiffany Hale, 32, who also lived at the residence. During a check of the home, deputies found what appeared to be methamphetamine in small plastic bags. They called in the Beaufort/Jasper Multi Agency Drug Task Force. About 18 grams of methamphetamine and prescription pills that were not prescribed to either woman were found.

Hale was arrested on numerous drug charges, and York was taken to Hilton Head Hospital, where she was treated and released to the Beaufort County Detention Center the next day.

Hale was charged with possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, including near a school, and possession of schedule-II and -IV drugs. She posted $5,000 bond and was released, according to the jail log.

York -- charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and crack cocaine, and drug possession -- is being held on a $10,000 bond, according to the log.
