Two Rutland residents are in custody after Meigs County sheriff deputies discovered what they say is the county's 17th "bake and shake" meth lab this year.
Stacy Williamson, 32, and Ralph David Thurman Jay Day, Jr., 35, appeared in Meigs County Court Tuesday afternoon after officers discovered 39 one pot vessels in a residence and garage on Nelson Road in Rutland Village on Monday.
They face a first degree felony charge of illegal manufacturing "meth" in the presence of a minor. Bond has been set at $500,000.
Meigs County Sheriff Robert Beegle said eight of the vessels discovered were reactionary, and a portion of the vessels were located in the bedroom.
The sheriff said officers neutralized the chemicals in residence and garage, and packaged some of the items for submission to the bureau of criminal investigation lab.
