According to the sheriff’s office, a deputy saw Horton’s vehicle in a parking lot and stopped to investigate. The deputy said a search of the vehicle turned up items used to make meth, including sulfuric acid, lye, lithium batteries, plastic tubing and ephedrine.

Horton told the deputy he pulled into the parking lot to inject meth before the deputy arrived, authorities said. Lamb pulled into the parking lot during the incident and “provided further incriminating information” that led to his arrest, the sheriff’s office said.

Both men were booked into the Madison County Jail on $10,000 bonds.
