Charges against traveling meth lab suspect

RIVERSIDE, Ohio (WDTN) – A Moraine man is now formally charged with making meth.

A Montgomery County grand jury indicted James Plemons Friday on counts of illegal manufacture of drugs, aggravated possession of drugs and illegal assembly and possession of chemicals for the manufacture of drugs.

Prosecutors say Plemons had a traveling meth lab built inside a trailer attached to his pickup.

Officers say they found a pot used to cook methamphetamine and the chemicals used to make it. They also found some of the finished product.

Specially trained crews had to respond to clean up the highly explosive materials.

Plemons is scheduled for arraignment Thursday, April 10. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
