The alleged discovery of a meth lab last week on Hamm Road has resulted in the arrest of a fourth individual, according to a press release issued by the Weakley County Sheriff’s Department.
Kimberly Dale Brasfield of 200 Hamm Road turned herself in to deputies last week at the Weakley County Sheriff’s Department.
Brasfield was charged with manufacture of methamphetamine, possession of Schedule II (meth), promotion of meth manufacture, possession of Schedule VI (marijuana) and aggravated child abuse.
Investigators with the WCSD executed a search warrant Tuesday at 200 Hamm Road near the Industrial Park Drive exit in Martin.
According to the WCSD, when officers made entry into the home, they apparently discovered three people with meth, along with various items used in the manufacture of the drug.
A 3 year old was also present during the alleged meth manufacture, according to the release.
Officers arrested and charged Kegan Tyler Blaine Hatley of Hamm Road; Christopher Lee Payne of Travis Road and Amy Marie Mitchel of Highway 118 with possession of Schedule II (meth) with intent to resale, manufacture of methamphetamine and possession of Schedule VI (marijuana).
Hatley and Payne were also charged with aggravated child abuse.
According to a press release, the case remains under investigation and more people may be charged in connection with the case.
WCSD investigators are reporting the discovery of another alleged meth lab found Friday at 1200 Lee Road between Martin and Dresden.
Officers attempted to serve a search arrant at the residence in connection with a stolen debit card.
According to the release, two people were arrested in the home and face numerous charges.
Chasity Dean Adams and William Coady Ferguson, both of 1200 Lee Road, were charged with manufacture of methamphetamine, possession of Schedule II (meth) and aggravated child abuse.
The child abuse charge resulted from the discovery of a small child inside the home during the incident.
Adams faces an additional charge of evading arrest when she apparently hid in a closet when officers arrived, according to the release. The Department of Children’s Services took custody of two children and a response truck from the Tennessee Meth task Force responded to clean up the apparent meth lab.
The case is still investigation and more arrests may be made as a result, according to the release.
