What was supposed to be a routine probation inspection turned out to be far more, when officers with the Division of Community Corrections discovered material associated with manufacturing methamphetamine.
The occupants of the 79 Junk Yard Lane residence — Christopher Evan Paul Jackson, 22, and Selena Noel Anders, 20, of Pearson Road, Clinton — were initially taken into custody for possession of meth, but once a warrant was obtained and the premises searched, those charges escalated.
Jackson was also charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, maintaining a vehicle/dwelling/place for controlled substances; and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was released under a $35,000 bond, with his first court appearance scheduled for July 6.
Anderson was additionally charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. She was released on a $15,000 bond, with her first court appearance slated for July 6.
When officers discovered the materials at the Junk Yard Lane residence, they called for assistance from the county’s Special Investigation Division, as well as the Sheriff’s Department.
The search turned up, reports show, all the components necessary for the production of meth.
Officers were on the scene throughout Thursday night, and reports were not released until late Friday afternoon.
