Father and Son Arrested on Meth ChargesThe Marion County Sheriff's Department has arrested a father and son on methamphetamine charges after a concerned family member called the department about suspicious drug activity.
53-year-old Tommy Bryan of McNeiley Road in Walnut Hill and 21-year-old Timothy Bryan of Racetrack Road in Centralia were both taken to the Marion County Jail for possession of meth making materials, unlawful disposal of meth manufacturing waste and unlawful use of property for meth making. Timothy Bryan is also wanted on an outstanding Fayette County misdemeanor warrant.
Sheriff's Investigators say they allegedly found an area where meth waste was being burned as well as various materials used in the manufacture of meth when going to Tommy Bryan's home. They also recovered a bowl with what is believed to be meth residue.
The father and son were not home at the time. They were later arrested without incident at a home on Gragg Street where the sheriff's department received a tip they could be located.
