Summit County sheriff’s deputies discovered two “one-pot” methamphetamine bottles in separate incidents this week.
The first was found about 11 p.m. Tuesday in the 2900 block of South Main Street in Coventry Township, where a deputy was sent to help handle a downed power line. At the site near Lakeside Elementary School, the deputy saw a bottle on the road emitting smoke.
Deputies determined the bottle contained ingredients to make the illegal street drug. The area was evacuated and additional deputies and meth lab remediation personnel responded to the scene, authorities said.
The following afternoon, about 5 p.m., a deputy made a traffic stop for reckless driving near South Main Street in Akron and found two men in a car using a 20-ounce bottle to make meth.
Jeffrey Sumey, 30, and Jack Zager, 26, were arrested on charges of manufacturing meth, deputies said.
