GATE CITY — A Scott County man and woman were indicted this month for allegedly cooking large quantities of methamphetamine last year in a wooded area near Clinchport.
Douglas Brian Lawson, 30, of Clinchport, was indicted on charges of possessing a Schedule I or II drug, manufacturing over 227 grams of methamphetamine and conspiracy, while Pam Williams, 30, also of Clinchport, is charged with possessing a Schedule I or II drug, manufacturing between 100 and 200 grams of meth and conspiracy.
The pair were arrested in July 2013 by the Scott County Sheriff’s Office after they were allegedly found operating an active one-pot meth lab in a wooded area off Mustang Drive in Clinchport.
At the time, Scott County narcotics investigators said the lab had produced 12 ounces of meth oil in addition to several grams of the finished product.
Scott County authorities said the yield of meth oil was larger than normally associated with the one-pot cooking method and could have produced meth with 90 percent, or greater, purity.
Lawson and Williams were among 21 people indicted by a grand jury this month on a total of 68 charges that ranged from drug possession to abduction.
Scott County Sheriff John Puckett said officers have served all but three of the 21 individuals.
