Failure to stop leads in meth bust

Posted: Updated:

HAMILTON COUNTY, TN. (WRCB) -- A 31-year-old man is in the Hamilton County jail, after deputies found meth-making materials in a truck he was driving.

But he wasn't the only one involved.

It all started when police say Jonathan Palmer ran a stop sign at Gates and Moses roads.

He pulled over in a driveway and that's when a passenger got out and took off into some woods nearby.

Palmer wasn't so lucky. The deputy found meth-making materials in his Chevy truck.

Sheriff's Office Spokeswoman Janice Atkinson says a "shake & bake" bottle that was actively cooking.

Palmer was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, felony possession of drug paraphernalia, and three counts of reckless endangerment.
