Duo stealing meth ingredient duked by law enforcement

They just keep coming.

Screven County sheriff’s deputies have charged another two men with stealing anhydrous ammonia from the Boyd Fertilizer Plant off of Highway 21.

Anhydrous ammonia is a liquid fertilizer that is a key ingredient in making methamphetamine. Deputies have arrested a number of people in recent months for stealing the fertilizer from Boyd’s, including six earlier this year.

Charged Tuesday with criminal attempt to manufacture methamphetamine, possession of anhydrous ammonia and criminal trespass were: Henry Charles Quick, 34, of

Briar Creek Estate Road
in Waynesboro and Erwin Dale Jarvis, 34, of Winter Road in Hepzibah.

Cpl. Kenneth Kelley was on patrol early Tuesday when he saw a small truck drive slowly past the fertilizer plant. Kelley turned off his car, parked and watched a man who was wearing a dark shirt and a mask work with the tanks.

The deputy called for backup and continued to watch while the man filled a tank with anhydrous ammonia. When backup arrived, the officers tried to arrest the man, but he ran and got away.

A tracking dog from the K-9 unit at the state prison in Reidsville soon arrived and within 20 minutes, flushed the man Kelley had been watching as well as a second man from hiding in the woods near the fertilizer plant.

Last October, the ScrevenCounty sheriff’s department used a combination of video surveillance, stakeouts and frequent patrols to nab six people for stealing the liquid fertilizer from the plant.
