O'Neal faces charges of manufacturing meth, possession of meth, tampering with physical evidence and receiving stolen property.
Both men were taken to the Carroll County Regional Detention Center. Trooper Jim Phelps is leading the ongoing investigation. Phelps was assisted at the scene by the Trimble County Sheriff's Department.
