Two nabbed on meth charges
By SUE WATSON
Two people were arrested recently and charged with possession of chemical precursors for the manufacture of methamphetamine, according to sheriff Kenny Dickerson.
A stolen heavy backhoe was recovered during one of the investigations, he said.
A Holly Springs man was arrested after deputies served an arrest warrant to his address in the 200 block of Colston Road August 17.
Dickerson said deputies noticed items on the property consistent with the manufacture of methamphetamine and obtained an arrest warrant to search the property. Chemical items consistent with a meth lab operation were seen and a backhoe reported stolen in 2009 from 51 Concrete in Fayette County, Tenn., was recovered.
Richard Steven Wilson, 46, of the Colston Road address, was charged with possession of precursors with intent to manufacture methamphetamine and with receiving stolen property, Dickerson said. Wilson was released on $50,000 bond.
In a separate drug investigation, Jamie Clark, 32, of CR66, Myrtle, was arrested August 24 after deputies stopped his vehicle and noticed items consistent with use in the manufacture of methamphetamine, the sheriff said. Clark pled guilty August 26 and was sent to drug court.
Drug court is a program for the rehabilitation of individuals who use drugs and is offered in lieu of prosecution in criminal court.
