MORE METH NEWS IN LAWRENCE: EXPLODING ANHYDROUS CONTAINERS
LAWRENCE CO.—Meth news continues out of Lawrence County as, at about 8:30 this morning, Tuesday, July 24, a suspect allegedly cooking meth and fleeing from police literally crashed and burned on County Road 1100 west of town.
According to sources we spoke with this morning at about 10 a.m., law enforcement entities in Lawrence County began pursuing a suspect driving a pickup truck this morning. We haven’t learned what the exact reason was that they gave pursuit, but the suspect has been confirmed as Kevin Fry (NOT “Frye”).
Officials have told Disclosure staff that the pickup truck contained an alleged rolling meth lab, as well as three containers in the bed that allegedly held illegally-procured anhydrous. Since the anny wasn’t in proper containers, it was dangerous enough to begin with, but when the pickup crashed into a tree along the stretch of County Road 1100 North (Frontage road, which runs across highway 50 from the fairgrounds all the way east to the health department), one of the containers was punctured, and allegedly, an explosion ensued.
Right now we don’t know the condition of the driver and are trying to find out. However, the release of anhydrous was bad enough to evacuate a considerable number of residents from their homes in the vicinity until the air cleared and the wreckage could be cleaned up.
We don’t know about arrests or anything of the like. What we do know is this: The girls were in Lawrence yesterday rounding up the usual court news, and there weren’t ANY names on any files associated with the last two big alleged meth searches, busts or fires/explosions, up to and including Cochran, Shoulders, Wease, or anyone significant…just a couple of petty meth possession counts against people whose names we didn’t recognize. We don’t know what void was left where when many of the most recent known meth makers in Lawrence were sent on their way to DOC (such as Derek “Hootie One-Eye” Wells), and we don’t know who’s trying to fill that void. But whatever they’re doing, they’re sure not doing it right…as evidenced by the mess ensuing in the county over these past several weeks.
More as we get it….and undoubtedly more in the print version, which will be available beginning Monday, August 6….be watching!
