DECATUR — A Decatur man was arrested Sunday evening for multiple charges, including possession of methamphetamine manufacturing material, driving with a revoked license and possession of drug paraphernalia.

A Decatur Police officer spotted a familiar vehicle at 5 p.m. Sunday. The white Honda was westbound on the 700 block of West Sawyer Street. Sgt. Chris Copeland said the officer recognized the 37-year-old driver. "He knew he had warrants, so he followed the vehicle," Copeland said.

The officer stopped the suspect at the Circle K gas station on Oakland Avenue and searched the car. The officer found a glass smoking pipe with cloudy residue. He also located a sealed box of Sudafed pills, lithium batteries, starter fluid, coffee filters and empty bottles.

"It is a meth-making kit,” Copeland said. “They are all the ingredients to cook methamphetamine.”
