A former NASCAR Weekly Series national champion was arrested and charged Monday with possession of and manufacturing of methamphetamine.  Robert Powell, 49, has been under investigation by local police in South Carolina after complaints by his neighbors in the town of Goose Creek.

Investigators obtained evidence from a garbage can outside Powell’s residence. That evidence was turned over to the Drug Enforcement Agency. The DEA found materials used to manufacture meth including empty containers of drain cleaner, cold medicine and syringes. Several of the syringes  tested positive for meth.  Based on the evidence Powell and resident, Elma Buchanan, were both arrested and charged with possession.  Both had bonded out of the Berkeley County (SC) Detention Center Tuesday morning.
