How do you explain how so many Christians are involved in these Meth related crimes?
During the past week, deputies and detectives from the Adams County Sheriff's Office conducted investigations which netted two alleged methamphetamine labs.
On July 28, Deputy Mark Brewer investigated a methamphetamine lab located along the Ohio Brush Creek near 1550 Brush Creek Road, in Monroe Township. The lab was found in a small cabin-type building in a field.
When Brewer approached the building, a white male fled the cabin on foot and eluded capture. A search inside the cabin revealed several items, such as ether, liquid fire, ammonia nitrate, salt and other chemicals and materials that are used to manufacture methamphetamine.
Brewer believed from the evidence that the cabin had been used for methamphetamine manufacturing over a long period of time. The cabin was located approximately one mile off the roadway, making it virtually unnoticeable to the general public.
A search of the area failed to turn up the suspect. However, according to Chief Deputy Jeff McCarty, the sheriff's office has several leads and anticipates an arrest.
On Aug. 2, deputies Shawn Cooley and Mike Estep investigated a methamphetamine manufacturing operation at 32 Penny Lane. The residence is located off of state Route 781 in Meigs Township. This investigation led to a residential search, where several of the same items, including anhydrous ammonia tanks were found.
Deputies arrested 20-year-old Brittany Hoffer, who resides at the Penny Lane address; Jason Stamper, 33, of Winchester, and Chester Hammonds, 37, of Seaman. All were arrested for Illegal Assembly to Manufacture Methamphetamine which is a felony of the third degree. All were incarcerated in the Adams County Jail on Tuesday, pending formal charges with the Adams County Prosecutor's Office.
In both incidents, cleanup crews contracted by the Drug Enforcement Agency were sent to remove the contaminated and hazardous items. Both incidents remain under investigation by the ACSO.

Update on Christian Meth activities. It's down this past month!
Law enforcement officials say methamphetamine arrests were down last month in Jackson County, but it's too soon to tell whether a new law had anything to do with the decrease.
In July, there were 28 meth arrests, down from 48 in June and 52 in May. A new law that went into effect July 1 requires a prescription for pseudoephedrine, the key ingredient in meth.
Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics Director Marshall Fisher tells the Mississippi Press it will take 90 days to six months to get an accurate snapshot of how well the law is working to reduce meth activity in the state.
Mississippi became the second state after Oregon to pass such a law.
