MONTICELLO (10-16-12) – Three people were charged with manufacturing methamphetamine after police went to a Missouri Hollow home on a separate case late Monday night.
Wayne County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested 32-year-old Brian “Bear” Hutton, 22-year-old Joe Young Jr., and 44-year-old Joe Young Sr. after discovering an active methamphetamine lab in the basement of the Young’s residence on Bob Shelton Road.
Detectives from Operation UNITE were called to the home about 10 pm to neutralize and dispose of the active one-step meth lab, an active “smoker jug” and other items related to the manufacture of methamphetamine.
Hutton was additionally charged on a warrant for receiving stolen property in an unrelated case.
On Tuesday, Hutton was indicted by the Wayne County Grand Jury on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine and first-degree criminal possession of a forged incident for a third unrelated case.
Hutton is currently also awaiting trial on charges brought by UNITE in a fourth case for possession of methamphetamine and possession of meth precursors.
All three men were lodged in the Wayne County Detention Center.
