3 arrested on meth charges
Roy Elliott Bennett

    A tip sent Bulloch County drug agents to a Brannen Street home Tuesday, where they arrested three on methamphetamine charges.
    Bulloch County Sheriff Lynn Anderson said sheriff’s investigators and members of the Bulloch County Drug Suppression Team responded to the citizen’s drug complaint around 4 p.m. Tuesday, where they saw a man “carrying a bucket with meth-making materials, walking out the back door.”
    The man, later identified as Roy Elliott Bennett, 28, Old Jesup Highway, Brunswick, fled from deputies, but they caught him after a short chase, Anderson said.
    Deputies also detained Melissa Burnsed, 41, Brannen Street; and Danielle Lee Tory, 27, of Old Jesup Highway, Brunswick.
    “A consent search of the residence by investigators led to the discovery of methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and components used to manufacture methamphetamine,” he said.
    Tory’s 10-month-old child also was in the home and was turned over to the Department of Family and Children Services, he said.
    All three suspects were taken into custody and transported to the Bulloch County Jail. Bennett is being held without bond on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine and obstruction.
    Tory remains in jail without bond on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, while Burnsed, charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and possession of methamphetamine, was released on an $8,000 bond, Anderson said.
