Two charged in
Ohio meth bust
Lawrence County sheriff’s deputies arrested two after finding an active methamphetamine “cook” at a residence in South Point on Tuesday.
Eric Roach, 35, and Mark Wiley II, 30, both of South Point, were lodged in the Lawence County Jail. Wiley was charged with illegal manufacture of drugs and possession of drugs; Roach was charged with complicity to the illegal manufacture of drugs.
According to Sheriff Jeff Lawless, deputies received a tip of ilegal drug activity at a resident on Township Road 616 and went to investigate. One in the residence fled on foot after confronting a deputy and couldn’t be located.
An investigation revealed a meth cook was taking place in the upstairs of the residence and fumes were being released. The house was secured and the suspects taken into custody.
