Police Blotter: DPD arrests 2 in connection with possible meth labTwo Dickinson men were arrested Thursday evening for drug offenses and possibly for the manufacture of methamphetamine.
Two Dickinson men were arrested Thursday evening for drug offenses and possibly for the manufacture of methamphetamine.
Dickinson Police Department investigators were called out to the 300 block of Third Street Southwest to a camper parked on a lot near housing construction, DPD Capt. Dave Wilkie said. While they were investigating the call, the officers determined there was drug activity going on at the residence.
“It’s not a meth lab like you’d think of with all the beakers and the burners and everything; it’s the shake-and-bake method,” Wilkie said. “And really all it takes is a couple of liter pop bottles.”
The investigators backed out and the Bureau of Criminal Investigation got involved, he said.
Johnny Clanton, 43, was arrested for possessing marijuana, marijuana paraphernalia and meth paraphernalia. His 22-year-old partner, David Towe, was arrested for possession of marijuana.
Charges are pending for the manufacturing of methamphetamine from the Stark County State’s Attorney’s Office.
