A Scioto County man and his girlfriend have been arrested on indictment warrants as a result of possible drug activity at a local hotel.
Scioto County Sheriff Marty V. Donini said detectives had received information of possible drug activity involving the suspects, Anthony Craig Davis, 51, of Lucasville and Jacklyn Brisker Lawson, 26, of Wheelersburg, and a vehicle they had reportedly been driving that resulted in a search being made oat 12922 Gallia Pike, Wheelersburg.
Donini said evidence of a clandestine methamphetamine lab was discovered, resulting in the Southern Ohio Drug Task Force responding to the Gallia Pike location to investigate.
Donini said, as a result of the discovery, they received information that the suspects could possibly be staying at a local hotel which the sheriff’s office failed to identify. Detectives and deputies responded to the hotel where the two suspects were arrested without incident. During the search of the room and suspects, detectives said they located suspected drugs and drug paraphernalia that will result in more charges being presented to the Scioto County grand jury on the two subjects.
Both Davis and Lawson were served an indictment warrant for two counts of illegal manufacturing a felony of the second degree, illegal assembly/possession of chemicals to manufacture drugs a felony of the third degree, aggravated trafficking in drugs a felony of the fourth degree and aggravated possession of drugs a felony of the fifth degree. Both are being held in the Scioto County Jail without bond and will appear in Scioto County Common Pleas Court on a later date.
