A Cherokee County couple is behind bars facing drug related charges. Cherokee County Sheriff Jeff Shaver says deputies assisted the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms in arresting Jeff Lowe and Janice Lowe. Deputies and the ATF obtained a search warrant of the Lowe’s home on Powell Drive in Centre on Tuesday.
During the search, a significant amount of methamphetamine, including an illegal lab and firearms were recovered. Both are charged with trafficking methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Jeff Lowe is also charged with manufacturing and Janice Lowe has five outstanding warrants for unlawful distribution of a controlled substance and receiving stolen property. The Sheriff’s Office investigators and ATF agents have been working for several months on this case.
