2 Days, 4 Arrests, All Facing Felony Drug Charges

Jonesboro, AR (KAIT) -- It's a disturbing trend in meth.  It's a "one pot" or shake and bake method of making meth. Basically, everything needed to manufacture meth can be done in one container.

Craighead County Sheriff's Deputies arrested two men on Sunday after police say they were making meth inside a home near Bono. Then, less than 24 hours later, another meth lab and more arrests. This time, deputies made the arrests in Egypt. Deputies say suspicious driving by one of the suspects tipped them off.

During the search, components of a lab were found in the floorboard of his car," said Chief Deputy, J.R. Thomas.

"He didn't want us to search the vehicle and a scuffle occurred after that," said Deputy David Bailey.

Deputy David Bailey made Sunday and Monday's arrests. He and another deputy suffered some bumps and bruises. Still, Bailey knows he's helped keep some drugs off the streets....at least for now.

Officials say this trend of one pot meth making is becoming so popular, for one, because it's so easy to make. From start to finish, it only takes about 30 minutes.

"We're finding them everywhere. We're finding them in the woods, we're finding them in homes, in the floorboards of cars," said Thomas.

Craighead County Chief Deputy, J.R. Thomas, says meth is the root of many crimes in the area--everything from burglary to violent crimes. He says that's why it's so important to get those who make the meth off the streets.

4 people were arrested.

Jason James and Christopher Pyle were arrested near Bono.  Police are not releasing the name of the other 2 arrested.
