Comments Off on Four people in Lacey’s Spring arrested after methamphetamine lab found in apartment

LACEY’S SPRING, Alabama – Morgan County deputies arrested three men and a woman on a charge of second-degree manufacturing of a controlled substance Monday after finding a methamphetamine laboratory in a one-room apartment, Morgan County Sheriff Ana Franklin said in a news release.

George Henry Rogers Jr., William Hunter Watkins, Sam Johnson and Casey Leeann Bearden were arrested on the charge and taken to the Morgan County Jail, Franklin said.

The Morgan County Task Force was helping the Morgan County Community Correction pogrom with a compliance check Monday at 69 Coffee Bluff Road when they found the four people inside a one-room apartment, the news release said.

Deputies found Watkins with a coffee filter containing a substance that field tested for pseudoephedrine, the release said. Agents searched the apartment and found a one-pot meth lab being assembled along with the materials used to make meth and drug paraphernalia, Franklin said.

Franklin said deputies have been to the apartment four previous times on meth manufacturing calls.
