Salem Men Arrested on Drug and Weapons Charges Sunday NightTwo Salem men are being held in the Marion County Jail on various drug and weapons charges in the aftermath of a search warrant executed on their home Sunday night.
22-year-old Timothy Pomeroy and 22-year-old Christopher Keech of 13-14 Poplar Street were both arrested for alleged meth manufacturing waste, possession of meth manufacturing materials, and aggravated manufacturing meth. In addition, Pomeroy was arrested on a charge of possession of ammunition without a fireowners ID card and Keech was arrested for unlawful possession of weapons by a felon.
Marion County Sheriff's Deputies say both men were home at the time the search warrant was executed. While no meth was being manufactured, there was evidence of past manufacture and materials used to make the drug.
The State Police Meth Response Team was called to cleanup the mess. The investigation into the case is continuing.
