Meth Bust In Etowah County

Two people were arrested in Etowah county for dealing meth. 37 year old Clifford Mathis charged along with 26 year old Brandon Murphy. They were arrested last week at a hotel in Gadsden after an investigation on meth being brought into the county. During the arrest, Murphy and Mathis attempted to run off — a passerby was able to help agents locate Murphy while he was hiding in the woods. Both men arrested after a short foot chase. Mathis was already out of bond on the same charge of dealing meth, as well as other charges. Murphy was also out on bond on a robbery charge.
