KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A routine traffic stop in North Knoxville Thursday led to a man being arrested  for having ingredients to make meth.

Justin Tyler Walker, 28, was stopped by Knoxville police around 7:45 p.m. on Cedar Lane at Midlake Drive when an officer saw his tail lights were not working.

The officer says Walker had dilated pupils, mumbled speech, and seemed extremely nervous when he was stopped.

A K-9 brought to check on the vehicle alerted officers to the possibility of drugs and a search of the car was made.

Police say they found several items used for making meth, include pseudoephedrine tablets, butane fuel, and a grinder. A small amount of white powdery substance, which was identified as meth, was also found.

Walker allegedly admitted he had purchased the items with the intent of manufacturing meth.

He faces charges of initiation of process intended to result in manufacturing meth, DUI second offense, simple possession of a Schedule II narcotic, violation of the implied consent law, driving without insurance, and violation of the vehicle light law.
