COVINGTON CO., AL (WSFA) -

Two nearly simultaneous traffic stops resulted in four drug arrests in Covington County Tuesday.

According to a news release from the Covington County District Attorney's Office, drug task force agents stopped Opp resident Geoffrey Kyle Flagg, 39, on 10th Street in Opp after receiving a report that he had stolen narcotics.

Agents reportedly found methamphetamine, syringes, lithium batteries, muriatic acid and Draino during the traffic stop.

Flagg was charged with manufacturing a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. His bond was set at $300,000.

Shortly after his arrest, agents made a traffic stop on the MLK Expressway in Andalusia. 

Agents reportedly saw two boxes of pseudoephedrine in plain view. Authorities say the driver of the vehicle, Thomas Allen Green, 18, told agents they had bought the pseudoephedrine from WalMart and were on their way to cook methamphetamine with it.

Agents reportedly found methamphetamine in the vehicle.

Green, Michael Romeo King, 19, and Matthew Aaron Kimmons, 18, were arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. They are each being held on $300,000.
