A 39-year-old Limestone, Tenn., man was arrested Wednesday and booked into the Marshall County Jail on charges related to the manufacture of methamphetamine.

Alexander Carr Smith was arrested by Lewisburg Police Officer Larry Hardin in conjunction with police action by the 17th Judicial District Drug Task Force, according to booking records at the jail.

He's charged with the promotion of the manufacture of methamphetamine and with initiation of the process to manufacture methamphetamine.

Initiation of the process was the charge lodged against another man from the Bristol, Va., area. Limestone is an unincorporated community on the western border of Washington County and the eastern border of Greene County in the northeastern part of Tennessee.

Police said the other man didn't have a vehicle, so he'd been driven to Lewisburg.

Smith was being held on $42,000 bond.

The blue-eyed Limestone man stands 6 feet 1 inch tall, weighs 270 pounds, and has strawberry blond hair.
