Meth Arrest Made In Walnut

Posted by wlpo on July 7, 2011

A meth arrest in Bureau County involves a health scare for a deputy.

A Bureau County deputy and another person were checked out for exposure to anhydrous ammonia after they opened a cooler investigators say was thrown from a car stopped by Walnut Police.  Tri-Dent was called in and determined the cooler is linked to Shane Walters producing methamphetamine.

After searching Walters’ home in Walnut, he was arrested for possession of anhydrous ammonia with intent to manufacture meth and possession of anhydrous ammonia in an unauthorized container, both felonies.  He was taken to the Bureau County Jail.

Investigators say more charges are pending against Walters and that other people could be arrested for making meth.
