SOMERSET– A trash fire behind a Somerset residence has led to the arrest of three men, each now facing charges of manufacturing methamphetamine.

According to a press release from the Perry County Sheriff’s Department, charges were filed Dec. 27 on the persons involved in the methamphetamine labs discovered at 105 West Gay Street in Somerset and at 132 South Main Street in Glenford.

The charges stem from the Dec. 4 incident at the Somerset residence when the Somerset Fire Department discovered lab-making materials on fire behind the residence.

The Central Ohio Drug Enforcement Task Force was called to investigate the incident and no arrests were made at that time. Detectives with the CODE Task Force executed another search warrant on Dec. 21 at 105 West Gay Street and located lab-making material inside an upstairs bedroom of the home.

Evidence seized from that residence, led detectives to the Glenford residence. Deputies with the Perry County Sheriff’s Office located two men inside a garage, actively manufacturing methamphetamine. Both men were arrested and a third man was found inside the home and was also arrested. Two of the men have been identified as 22-year old Brandon Butcher and 24-year old Timothy Murray, both of Somerset and each are facing two counts of manufacturing drugs and 54-year old Timothy Graves of Glenford is facing one count of permitting drug abuse.

The case remains under investigation and all will appear in the Perry County Court on Jan. 3 for a bond hearing.
