A routine probation search Sept. 26 at a residence on Bluebird Lane led to the arrest of two individuals after sheriff department officers uncovered a stash of what authorities called “mother jars” containing liquids believed to be meth-making materials.
“The liquid in the jars is also known as meth oil,” said Deputy Dale Bumbalough, of White County Sheriff Department.
According to Bumbalough, Jennifer Marie Puckett, age 30, of Sparta, and Jonathan Gerald Puckett, 30, of Sparta, were arrested.
Bumbalough said Department of Children’s Services was also called to the scene to take custody of three children who were living at the residence.
Jennifer Marie was charged with three counts of reckless endangerment, unlawful possession of a weapon, initiation of process to manufacture methamphetamine, and unlawful drug paraphernalia. Her bond was set at $155,000.
Jonathan Gerald was charged with one count of reckless endangerment, initiation of process to manufacture methamphetamine, and unlawful drug paraphernalia. His bond was set at $105,000.
Both individuals are set to appear in court Oct. 3, 2008.
