The Macon County Sheriff’s Department arrested a young man after discovering all the makings of a meth lab last week.
The Macon County Sheriff’s Department received a call informing them that Hunter Law had a meth lab in his father’s home. After receiving permission to search Law’s room, the police found chemicals and components in the room to make a meth lab. “It was not an active meth lab,” commented Sheriff Mark Gammons.
Items found in Mr. Law’s possession were: a Propane tank, ammonia nitrate, liquid lighting Drain Opener, Iodized salt, lighter fluid, 11 coffee filters, eight syringes, a spoon that tested positive for meth, scales, a funnel, set of electronic scales, baggies and Mucinex expectorant.
Hunter Law, age 20, was arrested and charged with promotion of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of narcotics. His court date is set for Nov. 20, 2013. $20,000 bond.
In a separate incident, a young woman was arrested from the parking lot of the Macon County Sheriff’s Department last week and charged with possession of Legend drugs, Schedule II and Schedule III drugs.
Department officers searched her vehicle after receiving a tip that she might have drugs in it. They utilized a K-9 unit drug dog named Gordy in the search, and Gordy showed a positive indication on the car.
Kodie Lewayne Rollins, 26, of 821 Jimtown Rd., Lafayette, was arrested on the spot and charged. Her bond was set at $30,000 and her General Sessions Court date was set for November 6.
