A jury trial has been set for one of four Grove people charged with manufacturing methamphetamines in the Port Duncan area in August of 2010.
Bradley James Kelly, 29, will stand trial on September 12, at 1 p.m. accused of manufacture of a controlled dangerous substance-meth, a felony; possession of controlled substance after a previous felony conviction, also a felony; and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
Kelly was one of four accused of “cooking” meth at a home on 45 Circle Drive, the residence of Felton and Burrow. Arrested and charged were Larry Felton Jr., 33, who failed to appear in district court on Aug. 1. A bench warrant was issued for his arrest. Danielle Burrow, 22, entered into the Delaware County Drug Court program, and Jesse Ray Stroud, 27, will be sentenced on Nov. 2, 2011 at 11 a.m.
In August, 2010, Investigator Mike Eason, District Attorney Drug Task Force officer with district #13, and sheriff’s deputies Mark Berry and Michael Lanning, were brought in to search the residence as the couple were subject to search without a warrant and were currently on probation through the district attorney’s office.
During the search, officers discovered items used to manufacture methamphetamines, items used in the use of methamphetamines with what field-tested positive for meth in the residue, and marijuana, according to the probable cause affidavit signed by Captain Teel.
Kelly and Stroud were also at the residence and admitted that they, along with Burrow had purchased pseudoephedrine on August 1, 2010 and gave the medicine to Felton to be used in making the drug.
