After responding to reports of a possible meth lab, the Statesboro-Bulloch Crime Suppression Team arrested three people June 11 and a fourth person Friday.
At a home in the 500 Block of Starling Road, a Pembroke address but in southern Bulloch County, investigators on June 11 located several items used to manufacture meth, according to a Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office press release.
“Investigators were able to take the subjects into custody before they could begin the cooking process,” stated the release provided by Chief Deputy Jared Akins.
Officers arrested three people June 11 as a result of the initial visit.
Jacob Ryan Smith, 38, of Georgia Highway 67, Pembroke, was charged with criminal attempt to manufacture methamphetamine and conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine.
Adam Scott Gregory, 40, of Sam Roach Drive, Pembroke, was charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of a drug-related object, conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine and making an improper left turn.
Cherokee Patricia Woods, 18, of Akins Circle Extension, Brooklet, was charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of a drug-related object and conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine.
The fourth suspect, Christopher Michael Jenkins, 42, of Old Donaldson School Road, Statesboro, remained at large a week later, sought on arrest warrants for criminal attempt to manufacture methamphetamine and conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine. But a Bulloch County Jail official reported Friday afternoon that Jenkins had just been brought in for booking.
The Crime Suppression Team previously issued an appeal through the news media for information on Jenkins’ whereabouts. The four suspects remained in jail Friday afternoon awaiting further judicial action.
