Three Men Arrested for Allegedly Cooking Meth Inside a Bronson Home
Published May 21st, 2014
BRONSON, Fla. -- Three men from Levy County are behind bars after deputies say they walked in on the trio as they were preparing to cook a new batch of meth.
It began when Levy County Sheriff's deputies received a tip on Monday about the occupants of a home off Northeast 85th Street in Bronson.
After arriving, they discovered numerous components used to make meth inside the home. Deputies say the men were just hours away from beginning, but were waiting for another man to arrive with Sudafed -- a key ingredient of meth -- before they could start.
As a result, the homeowner, 29-year-old Daniel Larkins, and two of his friends, 25-year-old Richard Sanders and 24-year-old Ronald Kingsley, were arrested and booked into the Levy County Jail on charges of conspiracy to manufacture meth.
Sheriff's deputies have issued a warrant for a fourth man in connection with the case -- while they're not releasing his identity, they say he's the man Larkins was expecting to deliver the Sudafed.
This is the third meth bust in Levy County in as many weeks. Earlier this month, deputies busted two different meth labs in Chiefland.
Because Monday's bust began with a tip, Levy County Sheriff's deputies encourage anyone with similar concerns to give them a call at (352) 486-5111.
