Meth lab found in SUV leads to indictment

RICHMOND — A routine traffic stop that turned into a surprise meth lab bust on Main Street in Richmond, August has resulted in the indictment of a local woman.

A Madison grand jury on Wednesday indicted Breckan E. Fox, 31, on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine (first offense), first-degree possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), third-degree possession of a controlled substance (alprazolam), possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana.

Richmond police stopped a Ford Explorer on West Main between Parish and Aspen avenues because a passenger not wearing a seat belt, according to Chief Larry Brock.

A meth lab was discovered on the passenger-side floorboard, the chief said.

Fox, the SUV’s passenger, was charged with manufacturing the illegal drug. The driver of the vehicle received a misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol.

The heavily traveled roadway was blocked for about three hours as police cleaned out the vehicle and disposed of the meth lab. The Richmond Fire Department provided support.

Fox faces a maximum of 25 years in prison if she is convicted of the two felony charges, manufacturing and possession of methamphetamine.

Other indictments handed down Wednesday included:

• Christopher S. Lamb, 36, failure to comply with sex offender registration and first-degree persistent felony offender. Lamb is a lifetime registrant because of his prior conviction for first-degree sexual abuse, according to the indictment. The PFO enhances the charge against him, making it a Class B felony that is punishable by 10 to 20 years in prison.

• Ronald B. Penman, 22, first-degree bail jumping

• Gary Dewayne Brock, 34, flagrant nonsupport

• Lora Collins, first-degree possession of a controlled substance (heroin)

• Adam K. Sniff, 28, unauthorized procurement of a controlled substance, first-degree possession of a controlled substance (oxycodone), third-degree possession of a controlled substance (clonazepam) and operating a motor vehicle under the influence of drug or alcohol (first offense)

• Jesse Paul Dalton, 30, first-degree bail jumping

• Candi L. Wright, 29, first-degree bail jumping

• Chase D. Logan, 29, and Jerome A. Rice, 39, second-degree burglary and second-degree persistent felony offender (Rice).

Grand jury indictments do not indicate guilt, only that grand jurors believe the state has enough evidence to proceed with prosecution.
