SYLACAUGA – Two Sylacauga residents have been arrested for operating a methamphetamine lab and are being held at the Talladega County Jail.

Jamie Honeycutt, 30, and Joseph Wade Daughtery, 21, had their initial court appearances before Talladega County District Court Judge Jeb Fannin, who set bail at $10,000 each, according to Sylacauga Police Capt. Kelly Johnson.

Johnson said officers responded to an anonymous tip and went to investigate the residence. Once the meth lab was located, he said the investigators called in the Talladega County Drug and Violent Crime Task Force.

Task Force Commander Jason Murray said two agents were sent to the location to make the arrests and continue the investigation.

Honeycutt and Daughtery were each charged with unlawful manufacture of a controlled substance in the first degree and felony possession of drug paraphernalia.

Manufacture of a controlled substance in the first degree is a Class A felony in Alabama, punishable upon conviction by 10 to 99 years or life in prison.
