Athens County Sheriff Pat Kelly says a man from The Plains is facing a felony charge after a deputy discovered an active methamphetamine lab at his home.
Kelly says Detective Jack Taylor went yesterday to the State Route 682 home 37-year-old Clayton Ator on an unrelated issue. When Taylor got out of his car, he saw smoke rising from the rear of a shed.
Ator came around the corner of the house – and when Taylor asked him what was smoking, the man turned and walked toward the smoke.
Taylor then saw the meth lab behind the shed and secured the scene. He got search warrant and the Narcotics Enforcement Team was called.
Detective Jim Heater dismantled and neutralized the lab with the assistance of The Plains Volunteer Fire Department.
Ator is jailed on a charge of Manufacturing Methamphetamine in the Vicinity of a Juvenile.
