Methamphetamine Arrests

September 26, 2016 Posted by Shawn Justice


As always, all individuals are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. The below record indicates charges and arrests only. No further information will be given regarding this case, as to afford the defendants a fair trial.

Two individuals were arrested after a house fire was reported on Bolar Rd. At 1:32pm, on September 24, 2016, a report was received by the Vinton County Sheriff’s Office of a structure fire located at 63822 Bolar Rd, McArthur. The McArthur Fire Department was dispatched and was able to put the fire out. While at the residence, members of the Fire Department noticed what they believed to be items used in the manufacturing of methamphetamines and called for a Deputy to come to the scene. A Deputy arrived and observed the same items. A search warrant was conducted on the residence and evidence of a “One Pot” meth lab and chemicals to make meth were found. Ferrell Jude, age 39 of McArthur, and Jennifer Scott, age 29 of McArthur, were arrested and charged with Illegal Manufacturing and Assembly of Methamphetamine and taken to South Eastern Ohio Regional Jail. Both individuals are scheduled for a bond hearing on Tuesday.

I would like to Thank Deputy Kyle Ferguson, Sgt Ryan Cain, Ohio BCI, and McArthur Fire Department, for all of the hard work that led to these arrests
