A two month investigation into an alleged methamphetamine operation led to three arrests Monday.
Charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, theft of anhydrous ammonia and possession of the ingredients to make methamphetamine were 31-year old Joshua Williams of Johnson Mill Road, 54-year old Michael Turner of Blane Drive and 22-year old Nathaniel Joiner of Stringtown Road, Elkton.
The Christian County Sherrif’s Office citations says all three suspects were arrested at 7351 Johnson Mill, where all of the ingredients to make meth were found in addition to tubing, containers and the ingredients already mixed up.
A gallon container used as a “cooking jar” was allegedly found operating in a wooded area behind the house. Anhydrous ammonia was found in an improper container that the gas could not be purchased in, so police charged the trio with stealing it.
All three were lodged in the Christian County Jail.
