A Moraine man has been indicted for allegedly operating a mobile meth lab found at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.
James Plemons, 45, was indicted Friday for illegal manufacture of drugs, aggravated possession of drugs and illegal assembly/possession of chemicals for the manufacture of drugs, Montgomery County Prosecutor Mat Heck Jr. announced.
WPAFB police, with assistance from Riverside police and fire departments, allegedly found a methamphetamine operation on June 2, 2013, in a trailer attached to Plemons’ pickup truck.
“This defendant had a traveling meth lab in the trailer attached to his truck,” Heck said in a statement. “He put other motorists and the law enforcement officers called to respond at risk.”
According to prosecutor’s office, the trailer was used to cook meth, and it contained chemicals needed to produce the drug as well as the finished product.
Plemons is scheduled to be arraigned at 8:30 a.m. April 10 in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court.
