A Summerville man was arrested in Rome this week after police say he was found with fake methamphetamine.

Rome police arrested two people, Joseph Lee Byrd, 41 of Cave Spring, and Gene Antonio Moses, 40 of Summerville, after they found counterfeit drugs in their possession.

They were taken into custody on West 5th Street near 2nd Avenue.

Both are charged with possession, delivery, distribution or sale of a counterfeit substance.

Byrd is also charged with probation violation.
