Madison police arrested two people Tuesday after receiving information into the production of methamphetamine.
Angel M. Fluhr, 48, and Bobby J. Troxell, 34, were arrested after a confidential informant provided information to the police.
Both Fluhr and Troxell face charges of manufacturing meth, a Class A felony; possession of meth, a Class B felony; and possession of precursors, a Class C felony.
During the course of the investigation, police reviewed NPLEX records, which record the number of times a person purchases pseudoephedrine. Police found Fluhr had bought pseudoephedrine nine times since July and Troxell had bought it nine times since September, according to the probable cause affidavit.
When Lt. Det. Jonathon Simpson and Senior Patrolman Joe Baker went to Fluhr's residence at Windridge Apartments, they noticed a strong smell associated with the manufacturing of meth coming from the apartment, according to the affidavit.
Due to concerns for safety, officers secured the residence and found Fluhr and Troxell inside, police said.
According to the probable cause affidavit, police found several items used to manufacture meth in the residence, including aluminum foil strips, jars with white residue, coffee filters, salt, plastic wrap, burnt foil, cut open cold packs, lye, digital scales and lithium batteries.
Police said they also found a used meth lab in the trash can.
Fluhr and Troxell were taken to the Jefferson County Jail.
