According to Bob Gault, media relations coordinator for the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office, Justin A. Holt, 29, Nathan D. Myers, 23, and Joseph T. Sydnor, 20, were charged with initiation of the process to manufacture methamphetamine, and other charges.
Reports noted deputies were looking for a person in connection with a criminal warrant and were told when they went to 240 Dixie Drive the person “no longer lived there.”
While in the process of the investigation to locate the wanted person, deputies asked permission to look inside the residence. Upon entering, they “observed two pills, a small, clear bag with meth residue and several components used to manufacture meth and various items of drug paraphernalia,” according to Gault’s report.
Deputies also determined that in addition to two adults who lived in the home, a small child was also a resident.
Holt, Myers and Sydnor were taken into custody and transported to the Bradley County Jail where they were charged with initiation to process along with felony possession of drug paraphernalia and reckless child endangerment.
Gault said the three men appeared in Bradley County General Sessions Court Thursday afternoon.
Judge Sheridan Randolph granted a $30,000 bond for each defendant and Holt, Myers and Sydnor remain in jail this morning.
Gault said according to court records, the trio is expected to make another court appearance next week.
