Two arrested on meth and theft charges

ETOWAH COUNTY, AL (WBRC) – The Etowah County Sheriff's office says they have charged two people with meth manufacturing and receiving stolen property.

25-year-old Stephen Aaron Jones and 37-year-old Kenneth James Bishop were arrested after an anonymous call came into the sheriff's office. The caller said there was a stolen vehicle at a residence on Oakes Road in the Carlisle Community. Deputies arriving on the scene found that neither Jones nor Bishop could prove ownership of the suspected stolen 1997 Infinity Q-45. After receiving consent to search the vehicle, deputies found a working meth lab in the trunk.

Jones and Bishop have each been charged with one count of first degree manufacturing and one count of receiving stolen property. They are being held in the Etowah County Detention Center.
