December 10, 2003

Americus-- Drug agents discover Sumter County's first known meth lab. Three men are charged with conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine: 24-year-old Jarrod Brown of Ocala, Florida, 32-year-old John Patton of DeSoto, and 32-year-old Joseph Russell of Americus.

The lab was found inside Russell's home and is thought to be about two years old. Drug agents think the lab could produce up to 4,000 dollars worth of meth an hour.
