Boardman police pull over alleged mobile meth operation

Posted: Updated:

BOARDMAN, Ohio - Police pulled over what they believe was a drug making operation on wheels.

Three of the four suspects were in court Tuesday morning accused of manufacturing methamphetamine.

Boardman police first became suspicious when an officer learned that a man attempted to buy pseudophedrine, which is a key component in the manufacture of methamphetamine at a local drug store.

However, the man was denied when the computer system flagged him for making repeat purchases.

Since then, police have been on the lookout for the car that the suspect had been driving.

Police caught up with the dark green Ford Escort early Saturday and found the components needed to manufacture methaphetamine inside of the vehicle.

Evidence taken into custody included a black plastic hose with possible meth residue, plastic containers of an unknown white powder, boxes of cold medicine that contained pseudophedrine, a bottle of brake cleaner, starter fluid, salt and a pill grinder.

Four suspects in the vehicle were arrested.

Anthony Smith of Leavittsburg, Joshua Curry of Leavittsburg and Donny Thompson of Niles are all charged with the illegal manufacturing of drugs.

A fourth person, Phylicia Chalker of Vienna, was also arrested but did not appear in court on Tuesday.

According to police reports, evidence that was not clearly identified at the time of the traffic stop will be further tested.
