When asked by officers why he was in this area, he â€śgave officers conflicting stories,â€ť Russell said.
Two men were arrested on drug charges after officers reportedly thought they looked suspicious on Christmas Eve.

When officers spoke with the men, they determined they were both named on active warrants.
During their arrest officers allegedly located methamphetamine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia, Russell said.
