      Two men have been arrested and charged after a meth lab was found on a moped Wednesday evening.

      James Franklin Polson, 60, of Darlington, was arrested and charged with Distribution of Methamphetamine 2nd offense and Robert Wayne Polson, 56, of Marion, was charged with two counts of distribution of methamphetamine and two counts of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.

      Marion County Major Brian Wallace said that James Polson already had warrants out for his arrest when he was seen stopped in traffic due to a motorcycle wreck on Highway 76 Wednesday evening.

      Deputies working the wreck noticed items on James Polson's moped that were consistent with that of a mobile meth lab, Wallace said.

      After James Polson was taken in to custody, deputies went to a home and arrested his brother, Robert Polson, Wallace said.

      James Polson is currently in the Marion County Detention Center on a $10,000 surety bond.

      Robert Polson is currently in the Marion County Detention Center on a $30,000 surety bond.
