Two men are facing methamphetamine charges after authorities search a Priceville residence Thursday, in which one suspect was caught with a syringe in his hand.
Daniel Ross Dugger, 33, of 133 Davis St. in Priceville and Jonathan Calvin Nolen, 23, were both charged with attempt to commit a controlled substance crime and felony possession of drug paraphernalia. Both suspects were taken to the Morgan County Jail with a bond total set at $40,000 each by Judge Jennifer Howell.
Both suspects were currently out on bond from meth related charges, which could result in their bonds being revoked.
Sheriff Ana Franklin said that Morgan County Drug Task Force agents and the Priceville Police Department executed a narcotics search warrant at 133 Davis St. in Priceville Thursday. Agents had received complaints that Dugger was possibly cooking methamphetamine in his home.
Agents executed the search warrant and found Dugger and Nolen at the residence. Nolen had a syringe in his hand when agents arrived.
Several precursor items involving the manufacturing process of meth were found. Agents discovered an HCL gas generator, Coleman fuel, acid, lithium batteries, coffee filters and a burnt blister pack from a box of cold medicine. Authorities determined that the suspects had disposed of the meth lab prior to the agents’ arrival.
