Three arrested for cooking meth at house on Lenox Nauvoo Road

Wednesday, January 9, 2013

Three men are in the Dyer County Jail with $30,000 bonds after being arrested by Dyer County Sheriff's deputies on Friday for allegedly cooking meth on Lenox Nauvoo Road.

Larry Stewart, 20, 171 Cooley Road, Dyersburg, Tenn.; Shae Hollomon, 24, 25 McDavid St., Dyersburg, Tenn.; and Michael Wells, 24, Dyersburg, Tenn. were all charged with manufacturing meth and promotion of methamphetamine manufacture.

Sheriff's deputies were first alerted to the trio after they received a complaint of possible meth activity at 4550 Lenox Nauvoo Road. Dyer County Sheriff's Inv. Stoney Hughes, Cpl. Adam Fisher, Deputy Clint Wallace and Deputy Jeff Williams arrived at the location on Friday and found Wells and another male sitting in a car. Hughes got out of his vehicle and immediately noticed a chemical odor associated with the production of meth. He also noticed an open window to the house and with a fan blowing in it. Deputy Wallace went to the back porch and found Stewart standing there and Hughes noticed the fan had been turned off. Cpl. Fisher then made contact with the female homeowner at the front door and she gave the deputies permission to search the house.

Hollomon and a female were found inside the house and Hughes began searching for the source of the odor. In his search, Hughes reportedly found a trashcan in the bathroom with vapors coming out of it. He ordered everyone out of the house and went back with a gas mask and retrieved a hydrogen peroxide bottle with vapors coming out of it. He also found a coffee filter in the toilet and a number of other items used in the production of meth spread throughout the bathroom.

A search of the vehicle the men were sitting in turned up a pill bottle with individually wrapped Xanax pills and a coffee filter containing a white powder-like substance. Another truck with a garbage sack in the back of it also reportedly contained an empty blister packet of pseudoephedrine, which is used in the manufacturing of meth. A field test of the bottle from the trashcan tested positive for methamphetamine.

The individuals stated to deputies they had no knowledge of who was cooking meth in the home. Hollomon did admit to Hughes he did purchase pseudoephedrine earlier, but it was because of allergies. He stated to Hughes he has sinus swelling and the pseudoephedrine was used for it. All three men were taken into custody and charged with manufacturing meth and promotion of methamphetamine manufacture. They appeared before Dyer County General Sessions Court Judge Jason Hudson who set their bonds at $30,000 each. They are scheduled to appear again in court on Jan. 17.

Wells was arrested last month after running from Dyer County Sheriff's deputies after he and two juveniles were seen burglarizing a bulldozer on Great River Road.
