Guns and suspected drugs were found in the men’s pickup.

Two Tennessee men were arrested Thursday as they were apparently attempting to steal a trailer belonging to the Cherokee Sheriff's Office.

According to sheriff's office spokesman, Capt. Jay Baker:

Deputies on Thursday morning hauled the trailer out to an inmate work detail to assist the parks and recreation department with a project near the Cherokee Mills Boat Ramp on Bells Ferry Road near Lake Allatoona.

The deputies unhooked the trailer and when they returned a short time later, they saw two men attempting to hook the trailer up to their truck.

Deputies confronted the men and during the investigation that followed discovered suspected methamphetamine, a pipe and two guns in the men's pickup.

The men were arrested and booked into the Cherokee County jail where they remained Thursday afternoon. 

Jordan Tucker, 29 of Lynchburg, Tennessee, was charged with possession of methamphetamine, criminal attempt to commit felony theft, interference with government property and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony (2 counts). Additional methamphetamine was located on Tucker after he arrived at the jail. That led to him being charged with crossing a guard line with drugs. Jeremy Sisson, 35, of Winchester, Tennessee was charged with criminal attempt to commit felony theft, interference with government property, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony (2 counts) and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon (2 counts). Bond was set at $25,124 for Tucker and $20,249 for Sisson.
