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.
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.
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.
