Eleven people have been arrested and three more are wanted for their roles in two local methamphetamine manufacturing rings.
The Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team in recent months has worked to dismantle two groups working across local counties to manufacture and distribute the synthetic narcotic.
On May 22, 14 individuals alleged to be involved in the two meth organizations were indicted by a Chatham County grand jury on charges including conspiracy to violate Georgia’s Controlled Substance Act and trafficking methamphetamine.
Ten individuals were indicted based on their alleged involvement with a group centered around the Basham family from Pembroke, said Gene Harley, CNT spokesman.
Those individuals were: Thomas Randall Basham, 36; Melodie Jaclyn Basham, 26; Sharon Mulkey Basham, 62; Roger Basham, 33; David Allan Barnard, 46; Hope Elaine Mitchell, 37; Dustin Clemons, 34; Marcus Lee Lindsey, 31; and Tami Jo Hill, 52. Clemons, Lindsey, and Hill remain at large. The others have been taken into custody.
The other four indicted, Harley said, are alleged to have been involved in manufacturing methamphetamine in north Bryan County where a discarded meth lab was found on Cuyler Road. An investigation linked 36-year-old Christopher Thomas Davis, 22-year-old Heather Nicole Dunn, 28-year-old Kimberly Marie Carney, and 33-year-old Lisa Renee Williams to that lab, Harley said.
Davis, Dunn, Carney and Williams have all been arrested in the case.
CNT is asking the public’s help in locating Clemons, Lindsey and Hill.
Clemons is described as a white male, 6-foot-1 and about 215 pounds with brown eyes and short black hair.
Lindsey is described as a white male, 5-foot-10 and about 170 pounds with brown eyes and brown hair.
Hill is described as a white female, 5-foot-10 and about 170 pounds with green eyes and blonde hair.
Anyone with information about their whereabouts is asked to contact CrimeStoppers at 912-234-2020 or CNT at 912-652-3900.
