TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Police say a Tuscaloosa defense attorney is charged with trafficking in methamphetamine.

According to AL.com (https://bit.ly/2bJ0LJa), Tuscaloosa police say 48-year-old John Fisher Jr. and 42-year-old Christopher Shane Rushing were found in possession of two active “one-pot” meth labs on Friday.

Police say West Alabama Narcotics Task Force agents also seized 369 grams of meth oil.

Police say agents were informed that a suspect dropped off a backpack containing items believed to be components of a methamphetamine lab to an undisclosed location. A second man arrived and then took the backpack to an office on Greensboro Avenue. Fisher has an office on Greensboro.

Both men were taken into custody.

Fisher posted a $250,000 bond. Rushing remains in jail on $250,000 bond.

It was not immediately known if either have an attorney.
