MATTOON — Two people were arrested on various charges.

36-year old Christopher Peoples is accused of possession of methamphetamine, obstructing justice and possession of drug equipment.

33-year old Charlene Slater is accused of obstructing justice and possession of a controlled substance.

The pair was arrested about 9 pm, Sunday, in the 1400-block of Charleston Avenue.

Police say Peoples was found in possession of the drug, paraphernalia to use the drug and he tried to destroy the evidence.

Officials say Slater gave police a false name to avoid being arrested on an outstanding warrant and she also had prescription medication in her possession without a prescription.
