Deputies were dispatched to a home in the 14000 block of Martino Lane in reference to a possible house fire. Upon their arrival, it was apparent that an incident had occurred however the home was not on fire.
Deputies believe that the incident was result of the manufacturing of methamphetamines. A strong chemical odor, which is consistent with such meth cooks, was detected by all agents. While on scene, deputies also observed a white male subject later identifies as Jeremiah Foster, 30, crawling on his belly in the kitchen of the residence in hopes of not being detected.
At this time, TPSO Narcotic Agents obtained and executed the narcotics related search warrant of the residence. An active meth lab (one pot method) in the master bedroom where Christopher Yawn, 32, was found, a large quantity of hypodermic syringes used to inject methamphetamine and all of the precursors used to manufacture methamphetamine were located on the stove in the kitchen.
Agents also located one shotgun and a handgun in the master bedroom.
Both Foster and Yawn were charged with Possession of Firearm While in Possession of a CDS, Manufacturing Methamphetamine, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
