Drug bust in Springhill area

One has been arrested and another is pending after Pike County Sheriff’s Deputies found drugs in a Springhill home.

Pike County Sheriff Russell Thomas said deputies were notified of an alleged meth lab at 4900 Highway 87 in Springhill.

“Even as deputies were outside, they could smell something resembling the strong odor associated with making meth,” Thomas said.

Upon entering, deputies found glassware and several chemicals used to manufacture the drug.

A warrant has been issued for manufacturing meth first degree to Nannette Stewart Brown, a 40-year-old white female, but no arrests have been made at this time.

Thomas said there were several people inside the home at the time, including three children, ages 16, 2 and four months.

The Department of Human Resources have been contacted and that is still under investigation, Thomas said.

Also in the home, was 21-year-old Dallas Lewis Morgan, of Ozark.

Morgan allegedly fled the scene in his vehicle when officers arrived, and he was stopped on Highway 87.

He has been arrested on charges of possession of marijuana.

Thomas said stolen property that has been identified was also found in the home.

In an unrelated case, Thomas said a firearm, two bows and a $2,000 pair of binoculars was reported stolen.

Those items have been recovered, and Thomas said arrests will be pending at a later date.
