A traffic stop led Washington County Sheriff's deputies Monday to arrest two Limestone residents on meth charges after finding drain cleaner and other components used to make the drug.
Thomas Charles Angel, 33, 4065 Clear Springs Road, Limestone, and Ginger Kay Shelton, 35, 456 Patton Lane, Limestone, were arrested following the stop on U.S. Highway 11E.
Sheriff Ed Graybeal said deputies stopped a black Plymouth Breeze after seeing the driver was not wearing a seat belt. Angel's driver's license had been revoked.
A police dog's alert prompted deputies to search the car. They found a backpack containing several items used to make meth, including drain cleaner, coffee filters, salt, rubber tubing, latex gloves and containers.
Both Angel and Shelton were charged with promotion of methamphetamine manufacture and possession of drug paraphernalia. Angel also was charged with driving on a revoked license.
Both were jailed in the Washington County Detention Center pending Sessions Court appearances today. Angel's bond was $12,000. Shelton's bond was $10,000.
