TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - A Tuscaloosa attorney who was previously charged in a meth lab sting now faces a new, unrelated charge of receiving stolen property.

Media outlets report that 48-year-old John Fisher turned himself in Friday to the Tuscaloosa County Jail. Tuscaloosa police spokeswoman Lt. Teena Richardson says Fisher was in possession of a Harley Davidson motorcycle that had been stolen in April of 2013 from a victim in Fayette County. She says the suspect in the case sold the motorcycle to Fisher.

Fisher was charged on Aug. 20 with trafficking methamphetamine and had since been released from jail on bond. Police say Fisher and 42-year-old Christopher Rushing had been found in possession with two active meth labs.

It’s unclear if Fisher or Rushing have attorneys.
