Thompson also was arraigned on a separate driving-under-suspension charge.

They did not enter pleas to the felony, and all have a bond of $8,000 and are due back in court May 21 except for Thompson, who has an additional $1,500 bond because of the driving- under-suspension charge.

The four were in a car pulled over by police about 2 a.m. Saturday on Boadman-Canfield Road near Hitchcock Road. Police said they found several ingredients in their car used to make methamphetamine.
