Charges Filed Against Three Allegedly Involved in Centralia and Wamac Meth LabsTwo people have been formally charged in Marion County Court in connection with a meth lab allegedly found in a mobile home in the 1400 block of South Hester Street in Centralia on Thursday.
Both 27-year-old Joseph Lilly of North Douglas in Central City and 28-year-old Marshall Garrison of North Boyd in Dix were both charged with participation in meth manufacturing between 100 and 400 grams. The Class 'X' charge carries an enhanced sentence of a fine of up to $100,000 and a prison term of between nine and 40 years. Bond for Lilly was set at $200,000. Bond for Garrison was set at $150,000.
Three Centralia Police officers had to be treated at St. Mary's Hospital for exposure to smoke put off by a meth lab allegedly found in the bathroom of the home. Both Lilly and Garrison were also decontaminated by members of the Centralia Fire Department, but declined hospital treatment. Police had originally gone to the home looking for Lilly on an outstanding warrant.
A Wamac man has been charged in Washington County Court at Nashville with possession of meth manufacturing material, possession of meth precursors, and use of property for meth manufacturing after a meth lab was allegedly found in his car during a Thursday parole check. Teddy Brown of the 100 block of South Franklin was arrested after his parole officer, two members of the U.S. Marshall's Service and Wamac Police allegedly found the meth lab after receiving permission to search his property.
