HARTSELLE — Three Morgan County residents have been arrested on drug charges.
Sheriff Ana Franklin said agents from the Morgan County Drug Task Force and Alabama State Pardons and Parole went to a Hartselle residence Thursday after receiving information about the production of methamphetamine.
After obtaining consent to search the residence at 1397 Community Lane, agents discovered drug paraphernalia and a one-pot meth lab in a burn pile behind the house, Franklin said. She said agents also found empty cold medicine boxes, lithium battery packs, fuel and acid.
Agents arrested David Justin Pouncey, 33, and Dustin Jay Dunkin, 28, who live at 1397 Community Lane, and Candi Nicholle Price, 19, of J Blocker Road, Eva, who was at the residence, and charged each with first-degree unlawful manufacturing of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
Franklin said Pouncey is on probation for unlawful possession of precursor chemicals.
All three are being held in Morgan County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail each.
