WPD, probation officers discover meth lab remnants in Wellston home; one arrested
Law enforcement officers and probation officers discovered and removed a methamphetamine lab at a southside Wellston home Friday evening, December 13, and arrested one man in connection with the incident.

Wellston Police Chief Tim Ackley reports the discovery was made when probation officers from the Jackson County Municipal Court, with the assistance of Wellston Police officers, conducted a probation check at 739 South New Hampshire Avenue, which is situated just north of the 10th Street intersection.

After officers discovered the remnants of a methamphetamine lab inside the house, officers evacuated the residents from inside the home and called the Jackson County Sheriff's Office clandestine methamphetamine lab technicians to remove the potentially explosive materials.

The Jackson County Emergency Response Team, comprised of members of the Wellston, Jackson, Liberty Township and Scioto Township fire departments, assisted in the removal of the lab.

Holzer Medical Center

Chief Ackley reports 22-year-old Justin E. Boyer was taken into custody by probation officers. He was incarcerated at the Jackson County Correctional Facility and is being held on alleged probation violations.

Chief Ackley would like to thank the Jackson County EMS, the Jackson County Health Department and the Holzer Medical Center-Jackson for their assistance.

"With the combined effort of agencies, we are making Jackson County a safer place to live and work," Ackley commented.
