Four arrested after Berea police find evidence of meth manufacturing

BEREA — Four Berea residents were arrested Sunday after police discovered evidence methamphetamine was being made in a North Broadway home.

The following people were arrested and charged:

• Brian W. Bolton, 21, menacing, resisting arrest, manufacturing methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.

• Jennifer Jackson, 34, manufacturing methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.

• Jeffrey P. Tarter, 18, manufacturing methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.

• Nathan Hisle, 18, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana.

Police were responding to a report about a possible domestic dispute in the 200 block of North Broadway when the arrests were made, according to a news release from Berea Police Department spokesperson Sgt. Jake Reed.

The officers found some of the suspects in the house, but some also were hiding in closets, Reed said.

“There was a strong chemical smell inside the residence,” Reed said. “Inside the residence (the officers) located two large lithium batteries that had been stripped, several syringes and a metal spoon with white powder residue.”

The officers also reported finding a small amount of marijuana.

One of the people found in a closet, Brian Bolton, refused to show his hands and “appeared as if he was going to strike one of the officers,” Reed said in the release.
