Mother, son face charges of making meth at home

NEOSHO, Mo. — Authorities have charged a 26-year-old man and his 50-year-old mother with manufacturing methamphetamine after allegedly finding a “shake-and-bake” lab in their home south of Neosho.

Deputies with the Newton County Sheriff’s Department served a search warrant Tuesday afternoon at a mobile home park address on Palm Road. “We got a shake-and-bake lab and all the precursors,” Chief Deputy Chris Jennings said.

Jennings said Joseph Daffron and his mother, Sandra McGee, were arrested and charged with manufacturing a controlled substance. Daffron also was charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm when a gun allegedly was discovered in the home.

Daffron remained in custody Wednesday at the Newton County Jail on a $15,000 bond. His mother was being held on a $10,000 bond.
