Comments Off on Williamsburg Police: Jeremiah Dillon McKown, 29, from Virginia Beach, Operated Methamphetamine Lab in Motel 6 room

A Virginia Beach man confessed Thursday to making meth out of a motel room in the City of Williamsburg, police said.

Jeremiah Dillon McKown, a 29-year-old from Virginia Beach, told Williamsburg Police he and several other people had been manufacturing methamphetamine from his Motel 6 room since he came into town Oct. 5.

Police went to McKown’s room Thursday to serve warrants for charges in Virginia Beach after receiving information he was staying at that Richmond Road motel. They found several items associated with illegal drugs and a meth lab in plain view, according to the criminal complaint filed against McKown in Williamsburg-James City County District Court.

McKown admitted he obtained the items necessary for making meth from people who assisted him and that he intended to sell the drug, the complaint states.

He was transported to Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail and charged with one felony charge of manufacturing a controlled substance and one felony charge of conspiracy to violate the Drug Control Act, which prohibits the unlawful possession, distribution or use of controlled substances and illicit drugs.

He will appear in Williamsburg-James City County District Court for those charges at 10:30 a.m. Nov. 21.

McKown has warrants out for his arrest in Virginia Beach on charges of grand larceny and obtaining money by false pretenses, according to court records.
