A pair of individuals face drug charges for the manufacture of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and additional related crimes. The male, age 32, and female, age 30, were held on a $100,000 bond and $50,000 bond, respectively. They could face up to 14 years in prison if convicted. The Washington County Narcotics Task Force received tips from independent individuals related to the manufacture of methamphetamine in the residence. This confirmed other information that the male suspect had bought ingredients used to make the drug. They searched the home of the suspects and located lye, lithium, glass and plastic containers, ammonium nitrate, coffee filters, drug store receipts, lighter fluid and additional items related to the methamphetamine trade. All of these materials are commonly used in the manufacture of methamphetamine.
