Two people were arrested and charged in connection to the manufacture of methamphetamines in Tullahoma on Sunday.

According to Thunder Radio, 22-year-old Patrick Smeltzer and 27-year-old Nicole Means were spotted around 1:30 p.m. in a parked car in the wood line of Montclair Street.

Police reported that upon approaching their vehicle, a soft drink bottle that contained "what appeared to a meth cook" was visible in the floorboard.

Authorities stated they also saw plastic tubing and a second bottle that contained Muratic acid, which is used in the production of meth.

After receiving permission to search the vehicle, a backpack was found that contained other products used in manufacturing meth, the report stated.

Smeltzer also allegedly had a small quantity of marijuana in his shirt.

He and Means were arrested and charged with possession of a schedule VI drug and intent to manufacture methamphetamines.

The Meth Task Force was called to the scene and the duo's vehicle was seized.

Smeltzer's bond was set at $26,500 and Means' bond was set at $25,000. They are due in court on December 12.
