Two Lawrenceburg men arrested following a meth lab bust on Mill Creek Pike on Sept. 14 were indicted Nov. 7 by the Anderson County Grand Jury for complicity in manufacturing meth, a Class B felony.
Indicted were Christopher James Caffee, 36, of 1940 Mill Creek Pike Road, Lawrenceburg, Jeffrey Wayne Goodlett, 38, of 430 Bondville Road, Salvisa; and Dylan T. Hawkins, 18, 1930 Mill Creek Pike, Lawrenceburg.
Goodlett, who had been previously convicted of complicity in manufacturing meth in January 2012, will be charged with a Class A felony as a second or subsequent offender, according to court documents.
All three men were also indicted for first-degree illegal possession of methamphetamine, a Class D felony.
The Anderson County Sheriff’s Office received an anonymous tip about the suspected meth lab located behind a residence on Mill Creek Pike, later arresting and transporting Caffee, Goodlett and Hawkins to the city police department to be decontaminated.
Anderson County Sheriff’s Detective Bryan Taylor also found methamphetamine manufacturing items outside the Mill Creek Pike residence, including lithium battery strips, pseudoephedrine, rubbing tubing and two “shake and bake” meth labs.
Robert Medley, 25, of 1141 Versailles Road, Lot 35, and Angel Baker, 21, of 102 Bondville Road, Salvisa; were also indicted Nov. 7 on felonies of complicity in manufacturing meth.
Medley was also indicted on a first-degree felony count of wanton endangerment; a Class D felony count of illegal possession of a controlled substance; and a count of first-degree illegal use or possession of drug paraphernalia, a Class A misdemeanor.
Baker received a second indictment on a felony charge of unlawful distribution with the intent to use a combination of drug products as a precursor to methamphetamine.
The indictments stem from a Sept. 13 incident in which police raided Medley’s Versailles Road residence after seeking and obtaining a search warrant.
Officers observed Medley cooking methamphetamine at the Versailles Road trailer, according to the police report.
According to an Anderson News report from Sept. 19, Medley told officers he “shoots up meth and needs rehab.” He also reportedly told officers he was “making meth to sell to support his family.”
