A Byron man was charged Friday with manufacturing methamphetamines, according to a Warner Robins Police Department release.
Manuel Lopez, 44, of Byron, was being held in the Houston County jail. Police initially responded to reports of a suspicious person at the 1800 block of Watson Boulevard. According to the release, officers discovered an open warrant against Lopez and placed him in custody.
Upon searching Lopez, the officers found a suspicious substance in a plastic bottle and called the narcotics unit, which in turn called the Drug Enforcement Administration.
