Jeremy Spain, 30, 1107 Ridgeway St., Dyersburg, Tenn., is charged with initiating methamphetamine manufacture.
Dyer County Sheriff's Sgt. Heath Walker received information about possible meth production taking place at Spain's residence and went to investigate. As he walked up the driveway he reportedly smelled an odor commonly associated with the production of meth coming from a dog-food bag in the bed of a truck that was there. After knocking on the door, Spain answered and gave Walker consent to search the residence. Deputies searched the residence and found items used in the production of meth, including a gas generator, and pseudoephedrine blister packs.
Inside the bag of dog food in the bed of the truck, deputies found lithium battery strips and their hulls, plus used coffee filters.
The gas generator was neutralized by Dep. Kenneth Jackson and Dep. Kenneth Goff.
Spain was taken into custody and is being held in the Dyer County Jail with his bond set at $8,000.
