Three men were arrested Friday evening after Sheriff’s Deputies discovered “two active meth labs” inside a residence near Eli.
Deputy Nick Bertram told WJRS NEWS that he and Deputy Clete McAninch began their investigation after receiving information that “methamphetamine was being made” inside the residence located at 256 Dockery Road. The Deputies went to the Thomas Roark residence and received “consent to search the premises” from Roark, according to Bertram.
Deputy Bertram said the “two active meth labs” were discovered in the kitchen of the home along with several “precursors” used in “cooking meth”.
Thomas Roark, age 50, was taken into custody along with John Dearing, age 39, and 38 year old Eric Kazsuk.
All three men are charged with Manufacturing Methamphetamine. Kazsuk was also served with a warrant for Failing to Pay Child Support.
All three were lodged in the Russell County Detention Center. Deputies Lee Smith and Evan Burton also assisted with the arrests.
