Two men were arrested Feb. 18 after Madisonville Police served a search warrant on their Old Cemetery Road home.

Det. Adam Russell said Randell Harrill and Edward Hurley Jr. were detained as officers served the warrant on suspicion of drug activity at the house and began the search.

Russell said officers found a large amount of suspected marijuana, a baggie of suspected meth, two glass meth pipes, a pipe used to smoke marijuana, a digital scale, a baggie with suspected Suboxone strips, a baggie with four orange pills in it, a straw, several new baggies, two grinders, six brown pills, a vial of testosterone and $793 in cash.

In an outside laundry room and storage shed, Russell said officers found several items that are used in the manufacture of meth, including a one pot meth lab, an open bottle of liquid fire, two cans of lighter fluid, a box of instant cold packs, a 24 ounce gasser bottle, a bottle of unidentified clear liquid, a can of Drano, a digital scale, a coffee grinder, a dish with white residue on it, an empty mason jar, an empty Dr. Pepper bottle and one glass bottle with a bi-layer liquid in it.

Russell said he read Harrill and Hurley their rights and then asked them about all the items. Harrill reportedly said he smoked meth, gave meth to friends and sold marijuana for $10 a gram.

Russell said Hurley was searched and was found to have a four pack of AA batteries and tried to hide two packages of ammonium nitrate off his person when he thought no one was looking.

Harrill, 56, was charged with the manufacture of meth, possession of meth for resale, possession of marijuana for resale, possession of methamphetamine, two counts possession of Suboxone, possession of Testosterone and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Hurley, 41, was charged with manufacturing meth and tampering with evidence.
