A criminal informant outfitted with an audio device bought methamphetamine from Murray and Olive on two separate occasions using $200 in local Drug Task Force money, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.

Drug Task Force members later searched the couple’s home in Lincoln and found a meth lab, complete with tubing from a hydrochloric acid generator, soda bottles, drain cleaner, camping fuel, a xylene solvent and wet coffee filters with a brown sludge inside, according to an arrest warrant affidavit from the Washington County Circuit Court.

Murray and Olive were not home at the time and were arrested later.
