Man arrested twice in 8 days for making meth | Crime
The Tipton County Sheriff’s Office says it arrested a man for making math for the second time in eight days Saturday.
Investigators say a tip led them to the home in the 1000 block of Walton Loop in Covington this weekend. Deputies say they could smell the meth lab as they walked up to the house. Once inside, they say they found cooking fuel, liquid drain opener, hydrogen peroxide, a pound of salt, latex gloves, a blender and marijuana.
While no children were home at the time of the raid, deputies say it was apparent children lived in the home and say the Department of Children’s Services is investigating to see if the kids were in danger.
“I am glad that there were no children at the residence when the meth lab was discovered. Due to the Tipton County Drug Endangered Child Protocol we are making all efforts to assure these children have not been exposed or injured by the cooking of meth,” said Tipton County Sheriff J.T. “Pancho” Chumley. “If the parents of these children will not make every effort to protect them, we gladly will.”
Jeff White, 31, was arrested at the home during last weekend’s bust. He’s facing marijuana and meth charges. Investigators say he was arrested at the same home with another man, 20-year-old and Raymond Sonwineski, on Dec. 4. He was out on bond on that charge during his most recent arrest.
White is currently being held without bond.
