Son indicted for meth making, arrested with mother, father

RICHMOND — The son of a three-member family arrested on a manufacturing methamphetamine charge was indicted last week by a Madison grand jury.

Boyd D. Neeley now faces trial on meth manufacturing charge, a Class B felony, punishable by a maximum of 20 years in prison.

On May 11, Neeley unlawfully possessed two or more chemicals or items of equipment for manufacturing the illegal substance, the indictment reads.

A May call about a fight between a father and his son resulted in the arrest of the two men, plus another family member, on meth manufacturing charges.

The Kentucky State Police received a call about a fight in a Galloway Lane home outside Berea, Post 7 Public Information Officer Paul Blanton said at the time.

“When the officer arrived, he was met outside by Stacie Neeley,” Blanton said. Stacie Neeley, 40, told the police that her husband and son were fighting inside.

When Trooper Jeremy Hamm and Sgt. Steve Owen entered the residence, they found an active meth lab, according to the KSP report. Floyd Neeley, 40, and Boyd Neeley, 18, were inside the home when law enforcement officers arrived.

All three Neeleys were arrested on meth-making charges. Floyd Neeley also was charged of possession of a handgun by a convicted felon and possession of drug paraphernalia, Blanton said.

A grand jury has yet to indict Stacie or Floyd Neeley.

Two indicted on meth charges, one could serve maximum life sentence

The grand jury also indicted Donnie D. Marcum and James E. Young on meth-making charges. If convicted, Young could serve as much as 20 years while Marcum could spend the maximum of a life term in prison.

While both face trial on the meth-making charge, a Class B felony. Marcum faces two additional charges of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, a Class D felony, and being a first-degree persistent felony offender. The persistent offender charge enhances the others to Class A felonies, all punishable by a maximum of life in prison.

Young also faces the additional charge of first-degree possession of a controlled substance, another Class D felony.

According to the indictment, the two were arrested Sept. 13 by Berea police after being found to have two or more items used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine, along with possessing a quantity of the finished product.

In other indictments:

• Jessica Rennae Caveeza, first-degree possession of a controlled substance, a Class D felony, and possession of drug paraphernalia, a Class A misdemeanor.

• Hillary P. Combs, first-degree possession of a controlled substance, a Class D felony, and possession of drug paraphernalia, a Class A misdemeanor.

• Kimberly A. Croucher and Adam Croucher, theft by unlawful taking, a Class D felony.

• Kimberly A. Croucher, five counts of second-degree possession of a forged instrument and fraudulent use of a credit card, both Class D felonies.

• Charles Wayne Key, three counts of flagrant non-support, a Class D felony.

• Lewis C. Silket, first-degree possession of a controlled substance, a Class D felony.

An indictment is a formal statement of charges and does not imply guilt, only that grand jurors believe the state has enough evidence to proceed with prosecution.
