By Kathy Helms-Hughes

   Two Mountain City men were arrested Wednesday after members of the 1st Judicial District Drug Task Force, Johnson County Sheriff's Department and Mountain City Police Department executed a search warrant and scored a half ounce of methamphetamine.
   Eddie Mack Perkins, 24, 202 Seahorn Lane, was arrested shortly after 7 p.m. and charged with possession of Schedule II. He was released on bond Wednesday from Johnson County Jail.
   A second subject, identified as Norman Warren, 38, same address, fled the scene and is still at large.
   "He knows we're looking for him," a DTF agent said.
   In addition to the methamphetamine, agents also seized several guns and drug paraphernalia from the residence.
   Warrants have been issued charging Warren with possession of Schedule II for resale and possession of drug paraphernalia. He also is charged with being a convicted felon going armed.
