Grand jury indicts 3 on meth-making charge

Police say they were making drug at Indian Fort Theater

RICHMOND — Three people accused of making methamphetamine at Indian Fort Theater near Berea have been indicted by a Madison grand jury.

Ricky D. Adams, 44, Timothy W. Baker, 47, and Martha Gallagher, 41, were arrested Sept. 10 by the Madison County Sheriff’s Department and charged with manufacturing meth.

The Class B felony carries a possible sentence of 10 to 20 years in prison.

After receiving a call about suspicious activity, the Madison County Sheriff’s Department Narcotics Unit and Berea Police investigated the area just east of Berea, according to a news release from the sheriff’s department.

The officers reported seeing Adams, Gallagher and Baker walking from the amphitheater to the parking lot carrying a 5-gallon bucket.

The officers smelled a strong odor of ammonia, a chemical used to make meth, and found enough chemicals to make one-quarter of a gram of meth, the release stated.

Other indictments from Nov. 28:

• Calvin C. King, 42, first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance (oxycodone) and possession of marijuana.

• Dustin W. Lynch, 27, first-degree robbery, tampering with physical evidence and second-degree persistent felony offender. Lynch is accused of using a knife Oct. 16 to hold up the Swifty Gas Station on Big Hill Avenue. Lynch also was indicted on theft by unlawful taking (under $10,000) in a separate incident involving property from KU Electric.

• Thomas Lesson, 29, two counts of fraudulent use of a credit card.

• Timothy A. Argerbright, 38, criminal possession of a forged instrument, theft by deception and first-degree persistent felony offender.

• Larry R. Dunaway, 34, two counts of theft by unlawful taking (under $10,000), receiving stolen property (under $10,000), three counts of theft by failure to make required disposition of property (under $10,000), theft by deception (under $10,000), first-degree persistent felony offender. Dunaway is accused of theft by unlawful taking in connection with two incidents at Walmart and the three counts of theft by failure to make required disposition involving property from Rent-A-Center and Lease Zone, according to the indictment.

• Bruce Kelley, 31, receiving stolen property (under $10,000), fraudulent use of a credit card (under $10,000), second-degree persistent felony offender. Kelley is accused of possessing property that was stolen from Morrison Motor Works, according to the indictment.

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.

CORRECTION (published Dec. 7, 2012 on Page A2): A story published in the Dec. 4 issue of the Richmond Register incorrectly identified Larry R. Dunaway, 35, who was indicted by a Madison grand jury. He is not the Larry C. Dunaway, 53, who was named in the story.
