BUTLER COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

The Butler County Sheriff's Office announced it has arrested two suspects that allegedly were buying products to manufacture methamphetamine.

According to police, Christopher Abrams, 38, was charged with drug abuse instruments, a second-degree misdemeanor and Samuel Garnett, 50, was charged with illegal assembly of chemicals for the manufacture of drugs, a third-degree felony.

Butler Co. Sheriff, Richard Jones, credits the retail business that reported the suspicious vehicle in the incident.

“Basically, one of our businesses called us and reported the same vehicle, same two occupants purchasing the same items a few days in a row, items you have to sign for from the pharmacy to purchase."

Jones said an investigation into the vehicle led to the men admitting they bought the items to manufacture methamphetamine.

The incident is still under investigation.
