Comments Off on Two Methamphetamine labs in Greenfield busted

Officers with the Greenfield Police Department and Paint Creek EMS/Fire personnel kept busy Sunday with two meth busts in the village, one in the afternoon and the other in the evening.

According to a statement released by GPD Chief Tim Hester, on Sunday at 1:42 p.m. Greenfield police officers responded to investigate a complaint of people trespassing at a vacant house in the 600 block of Dickey Avenue.

When officers arrived they located three subjects nearby, and while speaking with them one of the subjects took off running. Officers pursued the subject on foot but he eluded capture, the statement says.

One officer received minor injuries during the chase, but required no treatment, Hester said.

The two other subjects were detained and upon searching the vacant home, officers found a one pot meth lab in the basement.

Paint Creek Joint EMS/Fire Dept. responded and officers neutralized and removed the meth lab.

Later the same day at 7:19 p.m., officers were investigating a parking complaint in the 600 block of Jefferson Street when they noticed a strong odor of chemicals coming from an open window of a nearby apartment.

Officers evacuated all of the apartments and obtained a search warrant and located a one pot meth lab inside.

Paint Creek EMS/Fire again responded for safety purposes and officers neutralized and removed the lab.

Benjamin Kelly Stockton, 30, who was inside the apartment, was arrested on an outstanding warrant for non-support and taken to the Greenfield jail.

Felony charges in both cases will be filed once the investigations are complete and the cases are presented to a Highland County grand jury.
