Two men were arrested after allegedly attempting to dispose of a meth lab.
Members of the Portage County Drug Task Force and the Portage County Sheriff’s Office were called to a home on Kapity Drive in Suffield Township in search of 36-year-old Michael McClelland,who was wanted by the Task Force for Illegal Manufacturing of Methamphetamine at his home on Heartwood Drive in Suffield Township.
Keith Brian Davis was arrested at McClelland’s Heartwood Drive house for making meth in March, but McClelland wasn’t home at the time, according to deputies.
When deputies arrived they observed both a man and a woman inside the house early Friday morning, April 6th. Portage County Sheriff David Doak says the man was running from the upstairs to the family room throwing large bottles in the fireplace. He also attempted to throw a can of Coleman fuel into the fireplace as well
Deputies were able to get inside the home to preserve evidence and prevent an explosion. While inside, Task Force Agents found chemicals and components used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine.
Arrested was 37-year-old Adam Evans, who lived in the house. He faces various drug charges related to meth. Michael McClelland was arrested later that day by Task Force Members and Sheriff’s Deputies during a traffic stop on Etter Road.
