Two Cherokee County residents have been arrested, on charges of Unlawful Manufacturing of a Controlled Substance.

On Tuesday of this week (May 4th), Cherokee County Narcotics Agents were on patrol in the area of County Road 18 and attempted to stop a vehicle, when the driver fled.

Officers then followed the vehicle to a residence and took the driver, 26 year old Justin Twilley of Centre, into custody for Attempting to Elude Law Enforcement.

Agents had received information in the past about Twilley manufacturing methamphetamine and after obtaining permission to search the residence – they discovered a meth lab – which resulted in both Twilley, and 28 year old Mary Catherine (Price) Maxwell of Cedar Bluff, who was also present – being placed under arrest.

In addition to a charge of Attempting to Elude Law Enforcement Twilley was charged with the Unlawful Manufacturing of a Controlled Substance.

Meanwhile Maxwell was charged with Unlawful Manufacturing of a Controlled Substance and Public Intoxication along with Disorderly Conduct.

Both were transported to the Cherokee County Detention Center.
