Richard Dean Lambert was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and trafficking methamphetamine, Myles said, and he was served outstanding warrants charging second-degree criminal mischief and third-degree domestic violence. Lambert remained this evening in Mobile County Metro Jail without bail.

Deputies first got a call about a possible home burglary at 4450 Alma Drive and found a woman lying on the ground, crying and irrational, and apparently under the influence of an unknown substance, Myles said. She told deputies she had been “chased” from her home and was trying to get back, Myles said.

Deputies went to the home and discovered Lambert and a girl, about 16 years old, in a backyard shed where a meth lab was cooking, Myles said. Lambert was arrested and the girl was turned over to her guardian. Myles said she and Lambert had been living with the homeowner at the residence.

Lambert will have a hearing Tuesday morning in Mobile County District Court.
