William Stephen McDaniel

Bulloch County sheriff's deputies responding to a call about stolen power Friday found ingredients for manufacturing methamphetamine, and two men were arrested, according to the sheriff's office.

Deputies went to Duck Pond Lane off Walter McGlamery Road on Friday to investigate reports of someone using power illegally after an Excelsior EMC employee made a complaint, Sheriff Lynn Anderson said in a news release issued Wednesday.

"While on the scene ... deputies observed items used to manufacture methamphetamine in plain view," Anderson said.

Members of the Statesboro-Bulloch County Crime Suppression Team were called to the scene and arrested William Stephen McDaniel, 29, of Duck Pond Drive, and Jarod Carter Hurd, 30, of Bradford Lane, and charged each with criminal attempt to manufacture methamphetamine, the release says.

Hurd was also charged with marijuana possession. Both men were taken to the Bulloch County Jail to await bond hearings.
