Two people have been arrested regarding an Aug. 3 incident where authorities said a one pot meth bottle was tossed in the parking lot of a Milan grocery store, according to a news release.

The West Tennessee Drug Task Force, along with Crockett County sheriff’s deputies, have arrested Joshua Rushing, 28, and Ashley Woody, 25, both of Maury City.

Both have been charged with conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine, initiation of a process to manufacture methamphetamine, promotion of methamphetamine manufacturing and reckless endangerment, according to a news release from the West Tennessee Judicial Violent Crime & Drug Task Force.

The release said Milan police were dispatched to the Super D parking lot at 6:17 p.m. Aug. 3 to investigate reports that a man and woman in a vehicle threw a burning meth bottle onto the parking lot before driving away.

The release said the state meth truck was dispatched to clean up the bottle that was thrown in the lot. Witnesses got a description and partial license plate identification that they gave to police.

The West Tennessee Drug Task Force started an investigation that led to Crockett County, where they were assisted by sheriff’s deputies in making the arrests.

Bond has been set at $40,000 each for Rushing and Woody. The release said they are scheduled to appear in Milan Municipal Court at 9 a.m. Aug. 22.
