SUMNER - Less than two months after they posted bond for meth charges, a local pastor and his wife are back in jail for possession and production of meth.

At 5:15 p.m. Friday, Lawrence County Sheriff's Department received a call from a concerned citizen, alerting authorities of suspicious activity in rural Lawrence County, southeast of Sumner.

After receiving a vehicle description from the caller, officers from Sumner and Bridgeport police departments assisted deputies in a search for the vehicle.

At 5:53 p.m., Lawrenceville police conducted a traffic stop after the vehicle was discovered with no front registration plate.

A search of the vehicle led to the arrests of Christian J. Johnson, 34, Lawrenceville, and his wife, Sabrina M. Johnson, 31, Lawrenceville.

Christian Johnson was charged with unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, unlawful possession of meth, unlawful possession of a weapon by a felon and no front registration plate. Sabrina Johnson was charged with unlawful possession of firearm ammo without a Firearm Owner's Identification (FOID) card.

Further investigation led authorities to a cornfield in rural Sumner where the suspicious activity originated.

Deputies discovered a working meth lab in the field and arrested Buster Bleu Green, 31, Sumner. He was charged with conspiracy to manufacture meth, participation in meth manufacturing, unlawful possession of meth and obstructing justice.

The Johnsons were each additionally charged with conspiracy to manufacture meth and unlawful participation in meth manufacturing.

Hazardous materials were removed by the sheriff's department.

Each subject is currently held at Lawrence County Jail on $15,000 bond.

On May 25, Christian and Sabrina Johnson were arrested for meth-related charges. Christian Johnson was arrested for unlawful possession of meth and unlawful possession of a stolen vehicle. He posted $3,500 cash bond and was released. Sabrina Johnson was arrested for unlawful possession of a stolen vehicle and posted $2,500 cash bond and was released.

A third person, Justin C. Ferguson, 20, Bridgeport, was arrested for unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, unlawful possession of meth and unlawful possession of a stolen vehicle. He posted $1,500 cash bond and was released.

Christian Johnson is the pastor of Life Church of the First Born, 1211 Jefferson Street, Lawrenceville.

The church opened in 2008 as a teen and youth center.

I KNEW these people back when they lived in California, they were really sweet people from a well of proper family. Its tragic to see what they have become. They are now THE WORST kind of criminal, this is on the same level of molestation.
