Meth lab seized, local charged

A local man has been charged with possession of meth and trafficking the drug after he was apprehended early Wednesday morning.

Sgt. Marty Martinez and Cpl. Ken Kelley received information on Wednesday at approximately 1 a.m.,  from a concerned citizen of a suspicious vehicle on Sassertown Road near the Woodcliff community. 

Deputies located the vehicle, a Chevrolet truck driven by Scott E. Lariscy, parked on the side of the dirt road.  Lariscy was standing outside the vehicle when deputies arrived. 

As deputies approached, Lariscy dropped a cell phone and a glass smoking device (used to ingest methamphetamine) in an attempt to conceal these items. 

Deputies seized the glass pipe and placed Lariscy under arrest.  A subsequent search of Lariscy’s vehicle revealed items which led deputies to believe that Lariscy had been interrupted in the process of manufacturing methamphetamine. 

Because of the hazardous nature of the chemicals and chemical reactions involved in the manufacture of methamphetamine, deputies cordoned off the area, closing a section of Sassertown Road for about 6 hours while Special Agents from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s Savannah Regional Drug Enforcement Office conducted a thorough examination of the truck’s contents.  Following that investigation, GBI Agents charged Lariscy with Possession of Methamphetamine and Trafficking Methamphetamine (according to Georgia Law, a person who knowingly manufactures methamphetamine in any amount is guilty of the crime of Trafficking Methamphetamine). 

An additional charge of Possession of a Firearm during the Commission of a Crime was levied, stemming from the discovery of a rifle in the truck with the meth lab.  For questions or comments on this or any other incident, please direct calls to Sheriff Mike Kile at 912-564-2013.
