The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office has reported that a car chase in Ider, Ala., led to the arrest of two men when officials said they found a meth lab and drug paraphernalia in the vehicle.
Sheriff Jimmy Harris said a suspicious vehicle was spotted on County Road 141 and when Chief Eric Watkins tried to stop it, the driver fled at a high rate of speed.
The vehicle went off the road and wrecked, but Watkins arrested passenger Daniel Dewayne Anderson Jr., 25, of Flat Rock, Ala., while the driver fled the scene.
Anderson was charged with unlawful manufacturing of controlled substance second and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, Harris said.
