A tip to police that originated as a complaint to the Department of Children and Families led to the arrest on June 12 of four Baker County men for operating a meth lab off Clete Harvey Rd.
Several deputies went to the address about 6:45 and spotted a man later identified as Jason Oralls, 38, running from behind a shed near the residence and tossing a plastic jug onto the top of a grape vine. Investigator Matt Yarborough said Mr. Oralls ran back to the shed, then to a burning fire into which he tossed several other objects.
Meanwhile, Lt. Scotty Rhoden nabbed the remaining suspects as they exited the shed and walked hurriedly toward the residence.
They were identified as Russell Rooker, 35, and Allen Yonn, 33, both of Macclenny, along with Jason Dupree, 34, of Glen St. Mary.
