Comments Off on Unidentified woman and man allegedly cooking Methamphetamine while fishing in Guernsey County pond

Charges are pending against an unidentified male and female following their arrest Monday night at a Bluebell Road location where they were reportedly manufacturing methamphetamines in a one-pot, “shake and bake” operation while fishing at a rural pond.

Authorities declined to release the identities of the suspects pending the filing of formal charges.

Guernsey County sheriff’s deputies located the pair after receiving a tip regarding the manufacture of methamphetamines in the Bluebell area.

According to sheriff’s detectives, deputies were working in close conjunction with the Noble County Sheriff’s Office after receiving the tip regarding the suspected illegal drug activity.

Deputies located the suspect’s vehicle at the pond on Bluebell Road (Route 146) near the intersection with Crane Run Road in southern Guernsey County at approximately 7:30 p.m.

Deputies observed the male fishing in the pond and when they approached him, he attempted to carry the meth lab back to his vehicle. He was stopped by deputies and ordered to put the one-pot lab on the ground.

The male and his female companion were taken into custody.

Guernsey County deputies who were recently trained and equipped to neutralize and clean up meth labs were able to neutralize the lab and remove the components from the scene.

The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation and the Pleasant City Volunteer Fire Department assisted at the scene.

No injuries were reported.

The male and female suspects remained incarcerated in the Guernsey County Jail as of press time Tuesday.
