MULTI-AGENCY METH LAB
On 21 Nov 10 Agents with the Major Crimes Task
Force assisted the Woodsfield Police Department and the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office in the execution of a search warrant
at 342 Guilford Avenue in Woodsfield, OH.
During a search warrant conducted on Ridge
Street in Marietta on 17 Aug 10, Task Force Agents obtained
information that they forwarded to officers in Monroe County.
The ensuing investigation by law enforcement in that jurisdiction
resulted in the execution of a search warrant for the manufacturing
of methamphetamine earlier today.
Task Force Agents assisted with the execution
of the search warrant and discovered a number of key ingredients
used in the manufacturing of meth. They were also able to ascertain
that methamphetamines were being consumed and manufactured at
the residence on Guilford Avenue. At the conclusion of the search
warrant the home’s three residents, William B. Kinison,
age 32, Gara B. Rogers, age 39, and Terry Kinison, age 54, were
arrested by the Woodsfield Police Department for illegally assembling
drug making chemicals.
Additionally, Agents learned of a possible
meth manufacturing site at Terry Kinison's property in Belmont
County, OH. Agents then assisted the Belmont County Sheriff's
Office with the processing of the campers that were located
on the property. Agents were again able to find key ingredients
used in the manufacturing of meth and indicators that show they
were cooking meth on that property.
