ORANGE PARK – Two men were arrested for trafficking methamphetamine after they were caught sitting behind a fitness club on Wells Road with a plastic bag of the drug.

Darrin Dewayne Touchton Jr., 37, of Jacksonville, and Antony Richard Staples, 40, of Orange Park, both were charged with trafficking methamphetamine after the Clay County Sheriff’s Office investigated two men trespassing behind a business. When the deputy arrived, he found both men sitting at a makeshift table with two bags on the table. Tests revealed one bag contained methamphetamine and the other mannitol.

Bonds for both men were set at $150,003 each.
