Fifth "Meth" Suspect Charged

Meth Lab

A suspect sought by local drug enforcement agents was taken into custody Wednesday afternoon.

John Dunn was wanted in connection with the bust of a working meth lab operation Aug 23. At that time, agents served search warrants at three locations.

"Mr. Dunn turned himself in with the advice of his attorneys," said Karl Merchant, an agent with the East Mississippi Drug Task Force. "He was booked into the Lauderdale County Jail this afternoon, charged with possession of two or more precursors with intent to manufacture methamphetamine and conspiracy to manufacture meth."

Dunn's bond was set at $65,000. Four others were arrested on similar charges last week.
