Two Ware Shoals men were booked on drug charges Thursday following an investigation.
Andrew Mathews, 20, of 44 W. Cork St., was charged with distribution of methamphetamine and possession with intent to distribute marijuana in connection with the incident. Daniel Swartz, 19, of 168 Greenwood Ave., faces charges of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and possession with intent to distribute marijuana.

Records indicate Ware Shoals police conducted a pair of undercover drug buys in March in which both suspects were involved. According to town incident reports, one of the buys came March 5, when someone called one of the suspects and arranged to buy meth, then met with the second suspect to make the purchase. A similar setup took place four days later when an informant purchased marijuana from the duo. Police conducted surveillance on both buys.
