Comments Off on Hillview mayor’s son charged with making meth

The son of Hillview’s mayor has been charged with making methamphetamine at the family’s home.

Jason Olen Eadens, 27, was arrested Friday and charged with manufacturing meth and possession of a controlled substance, said Chief Deputy John Cottrell of the Bullitt County sheriff’s office.

Messages left at the home of Eadens’ father, Mayor James Eadens, were not returned Sunday. The voicemail box on James Eadens’ cellphone was full and not accepting messages.

Two detectives from the sheriff’s department’s narcotics division found a few “one-step” labs, which involve making meth in two-liter soda bottles, in the garage at the home on Overdale Drive in Bullitt County, Cottrell said. They also found 2½ to 3 grams of finished product.

“He was apparently cooking in the garage when his father was at work,” Cottrell said. “He (James Eadens) apparently didn’t know about it.”

Jason Eadens is being held at the Bullitt County Detention Center in lieu of a $100,000 bond.
