A tip to Lubbock's crime line led police to a near meth-lab.
Agents with the South Plains Narcotics Task Force searched a home in the 1100 block of East Owen Sunday night. They found all the components to make meth, and proof that meth was made there in the past. But because the suspects apparently followed the wrong recipe, no meth was produced this time around.
Nineteen year-old Stephen Ray and Twenty year-old Ronald Lemmond were arrested and charged with possession of the components to make meth, and intent to deliver the product. Both were booked into the Lubbock's county jail on $10,000 bonds.
Had the meth actually been produced, the quantity would have qualified as a felony.
