A man is in jail after he told police officers that he was planning to cook methamphetamine once he got home when confronted about having meth ingredients items in his car.

Terry J. Maxwell, 27, was stopped by the Hartselle Police and Morgan County Drug Task Force Friday. He was arrested and charged with unlawful manufacture of a controlled substance. He was being held on a $5,000 bond.
