Two people were arrested Thursday morning after law enforcement officials were asked to search for a car which had reportedly been borrowed by one of those arrested.
The two were charged with alleged production of methamphetamine.
According to Bob Gault, media relations coordinator for the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office, April Michelle Durden, 33, had failed to return a vehicle from a resident in Chattanooga.
Deputies responded to a motel located on 25th Street and spotted the Honda Accord which had been listed in a “Be on the Lookout” request.
Troy Allan Hill, 33, was in a room at the motel with Durden.
After deputies found the car and Durden in Hill’s room, they discovered jars, funnels, coffee filters and ammonia nitrate, all components used in the alleged production of meth.
Both were arrested and charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
According to Gault, information received during the investigation led to the discovery the room which was occupied by Hill and Durden had been used to manufacture meth, prompting officials to possibly quarantine the room.
Both remain incarcerated at the Bradley County Jail, according to Gault.
