On Friday, the undercover detective arranged to meet the men around 1 p.m. at a home on Palmer Street. Through surveillance, both Scoggins and Houston were seen loading meth making items into a vehicle. Detectives and Sheriff's deputies stopped the vehicle near the intersection of South 9th and Jones Street as it left the Palmer Street residence. Officers say both Houston and Scoggins were arrested. During a search of Houston, detectives say found Lithium batteries.

According to the sheriff's office, a search of the vehicle revealed liquid fire, Sudafed, Coleman fuel, tubing, three containers of lye, hydrogen peroxide, freezer bags, a hair dryer, pliers and other items to manufacture methamphetamine.

Both Scoggins and Houston were taken to the McCracken County Jail.
