SIKESTON, MO (KFVS) - Two Sikeston area men face meth charges after Scott County Sheriff's deputies busted a meth lab north of Sikeston.
Donald W. Freeman, 39, and Dean S. Robinson, 46, are each charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a controlled substance, and manufacturing a controlled substance.
Deputies received information that methamphetamine was being manufactured at a rural home north of Sikeston.
Deputies found a working meth lab at the home Monday morning. Freeman and Robinson were both in the home.
Scott County Sheriff Rick Walter says methamphetamine labs are toxic, which makes them extremely dangerous to handle as well as being a danger to the general public in the area. Deputies specially trained in handling methamphetamine labs were called to the scene to safely dismantle the lab.
Robinson's bond is set at $50,000.
Freeman's bond is set at $5,000.
