The Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Office says they have arrested two men on charges of trafficking and manufacturing meth.

According to deputies, the Sheriff's Office received a complaint on Tuesday about drug activity at a residence in the 15000 block of Smoketree Road. At the scene, deputies say 30-year-old Norman Anthony Lowery attempted to flee from a shed on the property into a wooded area behind the house. He was later captured.

A deputy and his K-9 tracked into the woods where Lowery had run and located numerous items used in the making of meth. A meth lab was also discovered near the shed.

A second suspect, 40-year-old James Patrick Martin, was also taken into custody.

Both men have been charged with trafficking meth, 1st degree unlawful manufacturing of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
