Six people were charged in relation to various methamphetamine labs found in Meigs County recently while another person is being sought by law enforcement in connection with labs.

Deputies from the Meigs County Sheriff's Office found meth labs at two separate locations in Rutland Twp., including gas generators, "numerous one-pot reactionary vessels" and other materials allegedly used in the manufacturing of meth, according to a news release from the sheriff's office.

Missy (Walker) Priddy, 31, of Corn Hollow Road in Rutland, was allegedly found to have two gas generators and two one-pot vessels allegedly in her home. She was arrested along with Van Prince, Jr., 42, and both were charged with illegal possession and assembly of chemicals to make meth.

After deputies responded to Corn Hollow Road, they went to a residence on Lasher Road belonging to Danny Walker, 57, where more vessels and gas generators were allegedly found, according to a news release.

Scott Nickels, 41; Danny Morgan, 29; Kayla King, 23; and Wesley Gilkey, 40, were all living at the home and were charged with illegal possession and assembly of chemicals, according to the release. Morgan was also charged with failure to register as a sex offender. He and Gilkey had active arrest warrants for failure to appear in Meigs County Common Pleas Court on unrelated cases.

Walker was not present at the home and an arrest warrant was issued for him. Anyone with information about Walker's whereabouts is asked to call the sheriff's office at (740) 992-3371.
