Two Conyers men were arrested with methamphetamine while being served on a warrant at a metal recycling yard.

Michael Wayne Christian, 37, of Conyers had a warrant for his arrest out of Newton County for failure to appear on burglary charges. 

According to reports, a Rockdale County Sheriff's Office deputy knew that Christian had been scrapping a lot of copper and other metals. The deputy learned Christian was at the Allied Recycling center on Dec. 16 at around 5:30 p.m.

When the deputy went to the metal recycling yard, he found Christian in the passenger seat of a vehicle with Scott Brady Stallings, 37, of Conyers driving. 

The deputy approached the vehicle and placed Christian under arrest. While Christian was being placed in custody, another deputy struggled with Stallings, who was trying to put his hands in his pockets.

The deputies were able to hold Stallings' wrists and found a bottle in Stallings' pocket in which, "appeared to be a small plastic baggie of methamphetamine shards."

With Stallings now in custody, the deputies searched the vehicle and discovered a glass pipe, a small set of electronic scales and a plastic bag of small baggies in the console.

Christian and Stallings were then taken to Rockdale County jail, where Christian was charged with two counts of Possession of Drug Related Objects, Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession with Intent to distribute and Crossing the Guard Line with drugs.

Stallings was charged with Posession of Methamphetamine.
