Two men are under arrest and accused of running a meth lab out of a home in Woodville.

Leon County deputies went to a home on Woodville Highway looking for a stolen truck Monday. When they got there smelled the distinct smell of meth.

Deputies say inside they found some meth in the making in plastic bottles as well as chemicals to make more.

"We didn't find any finished product," SGT Wiley Meggs said. "We did find some of the oils and things like that. I really don't know how much they were producing in the lab, but there was enough to make meth by two different methods."

John Bodiford and Emory Williams were both arrested. Deputies say Bodiford was accused of trafficking in meth and Williams was accused of having the chemicals needed to make it.
