Two men who were out on bond for possession of chemicals to make methamphetamine have reportedly been arrested with chemicals to make methamphetamine.

Estel Haar, 60, of 3734 Rhodes Ave., New Boston and William Large, 47, of South Shore, Kentucky have been arrested for possession or illegal assembly of chemicals for the manufacturing of meth, a felony of the third degree.

At around 5:30 p.m., Monday (Feb. 27), New Boston police officers reportedly stopped a vehicle in the 3700 block of Rhodes Avenue for a traffic violation. During the traffic stop, officers said they observed items that are associated with the manufacture of meth. A search of the vehicle was conducted and officers said they found other chemicals used to make and process meth.

Large was found to be the driver of the vehicle and Haar the passenger. The two were arrested and charged. The two were transported to the New Boston Police Department for processing and later were taken to the Scioto County Jail where both were to appear Tuesday morning in Portsmouth Municipal Court.

During a records check associated with booking, police said they found that William Large and Estel Harr were currently out on bond from Scioto County Common Pleas Court for their previous arrests for possession of chemicals to make meth.

Captain Steve Goins said the case will be presented to a Scioto County grand jury where additional drug charges could be added to their cases.
