Bond denied for suspect in meth lab bust
Bond was denied Wednesday for a second suspect allegedly involved in a methamphetamine lab bust police made Monday near the Glynn-Brantley county line.

Glynn-Brunswick Narcotic Enforcement Team agents responded just before 5 p.m. Monday to a house at 31 Francis Drive, about a mile north of U.S. 82 off Post Road, in northwest Glynn County.

They were called to assist Brantley County Sheriff Office deputies in the arrest of 24-year-old Seleta Reaves on previous warrants alleging drug making, possession and sale.

But while they were there, GBNET agents noticed a suspected meth lab in a shed behind the house.

Glynn County Police Capt. Terry Wright, commander of GBNET, said Wednesday police also found 33-year-old Robert Louis Smith of St. Marys at the home. Smith was arrested following an investigation on a methamphetamine manufacturing charge, Wright said.

Bond was denied to Smith Wednesday, Wright said, because Smith was on probation in Charlton County for possession of methamphetamine and separately on probation in Camden County for aggravated assault.

GBNET agents, along with Georgia Bureau of Investigation agents who were called to the scene, did not find any "finished product," Wright said. The lab was a relatively small, "one-pot operation," he said, and the suspected methamphetamine was still cooking when police found it.

Had the process been allowed to finish, Wright said he estimates five to 10 grams of methamphetamine would have been produced.

Reaves is still in custody in Brantley County, but Glynn County charges against her are pending, Wright said.

In Brantley County, Reaves is charged with manufacturing methamphetamine with a child present, trafficking methamphetamine and distributing a Schedule II controlled substance - one with a legitimate medical use that has a strong potential for abuse or addiction.
