[ISP] Four Arrested at Hagerstown Meth Lab
Start Date: 3/30/2012
End Date: 3/30/2012
Entry Description

Wayne County – Yesterday Hagerstown Police received a tip about activity suggesting the possible manufacture of methamphetamine at a house trailer at 472 Jones Road, Lot #4 in Hagerstown.  Hagerstown Officer Blaase contacted Nate Raney of the Indiana State Police Meth Suppression Unit and the two started an investigation.

Enough information was gained that a search warrant was obtained and served late last evening by the Hagerstown Police, Indiana State Police, and Deputies from the Wayne County Sheriff’s Department. Four people were arrested as a result of that search warrant.  Officers discovered materials used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine, as well as marijuana.

Arrested at the home was Lee Cravens, Jr., age 41.  He was charged with Manufacturing Methamphetamine, Class “B” Felony, and Possession Precursors to Manufacture Methamphetamine, Class “D” Felony. Tommy Johnson, age 41, was charged with Maintaining a Common Nuisance, Class “D” Felony, Possession of Marijuana, Class “A” Misdemeanor and Possession of Paraphernalia, Class “B” Misdemeanor.

Dennis D. Riddle, age 36, was charged with Maintaining a Common Nuisance, Class “D” Felony, Possession of Marijuana, Class “A” Misdemeanor and Possession of Paraphernalia, Class “B” Misdemeanor. Tashla Clark, 23, was charged with Maintaining a Common Nuisance, Class “D” Felony and Possession of Paraphernalia, Class “B” Misdemeanor. The four were lodged in the Wayne County Jail.

Often times Meth Labs are found as a result of an anonymous tip from a neighbor or friend.  Anyone with information about illegal drug use may call the Pendleton Post at 1-800-527-4752, or the Indiana State Police Drug Tip Line at 1-800-453-4756. Tips can be made and kept anonymous.  The Indiana Meth Investigation System or IMIS, can also take tips on meth labs.  Just go to www.meth.in.gov and click on the “Report Suspected Meth Activity” Link.

All criminal defendants are to be presumed innocent until, and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
