Four individuals have recently been arrested under suspicion of making illegal drugs. Florida police suspect that the accused persons manufactured methamphetamine out of a camper trailer in the Pine Lakes area near Eustis. Each person was arrested after a search of the trailer, and each faces charges of conspiracy to manufacture meth.

According to the report, police received an anonymous tip about suspicious activity in a camper trailer near Eustis. When the officers arrived, they purportedly smelled a chemical odor, and they claim to have found “meth-making items” presumably outside the trailer. They asked permission from the residents to search inside the camper, and they were granted permission.

Inside the trailer, officers supposedly found a one-pot meth lab containing meth oil, and they also purportedly found finished meth. The officers also suspect that the four were selling meth in the area, but the report does not state what brought them to this hypothesis. Each individual was arrested and is currently being held in the Lake County Jail for an unspecified amount of bond.

Each Florida resident was charged with conspiracy to manufacture meth, and one individual was additionally charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, meth manufacturing and meth trafficking. No matter the amount or the severity of the charges one faces, every accused person is considered innocent until, and only if, proven guilty in court. Each individual accused in this case would benefit from accumulating information pertaining to their cases in advance in an effort to make the most informed and beneficial decisions as their criminal proceedings move forward.
