Thomasville, Georgia--  Two men in Thomasville are under arrest for trying to finagle a store owner into illegally selling them anhydrous ammonia.

Drug agents say that when Jerome Turvin and Paul Llyndsey were denied, they essentially told the shopkeeper they'd break in later. The owner then called authorities, who setup an undercover operation.

They say Turvin and Llyndsey were arrested when they came to get the goods.  "One of the subjects actually told us that they were taking anhydrous ammonia to a cook in Grady County. So, they were going to produce ounces and ounces of methamphetamine," says Thomasville / Thomas County Drug Squad Commander, Kevin Lee.

Turvin and Llyndsey are charged with criminal attempt to manufacture meth. They're also charged with criminal attempt to posses anhydrous ammonia. Agents say they didn't actually let them get the chemicals because they're too dangerous.
