A Maxville man who had been living in a Glen St. Mary trailer park was arrested the afternoon of July 26 for operating a meth lab at his residence off George Taber Blvd.
Police acted on a tip from a neighbor that had been passed on to the park landlord Josie Davis and arrested Bradley Griffis, 20, while seizing ingredients and other equipment from a bedroom at the residence he rented on Twin Oaks Lane.
Among the evidence seized was a plastic bottle that sheriff’s investigator John Hardin described as a “sludge pot” of cooked ingredients used to manufacture the highly addictive methamphetamine.
Mr. Griffis told the investigator and other officers at the scene he was advised on how to make the drug by another inmate while in jail, but that his earlier attempt to do so had been unsuccessful.
“It didn’t turn out good; it didn’t get me high,” the suspect was quoted by the investigator as saying.
