Jennings said a search turned up components of a meth lab, and Ronald J. Roeder, 48, who lives at the address, and Grant J. Jester, 22, of Stotts City, were arrested. Both men were charged with manufacturing a controlled substance. Roeder also was charged with possession of a controlled substance.

The defendants were being held at the Newton County Jail on $10,000 bonds.
