Two men arrested during meth bust

By Joe Beck

Law enforcement officers from two agencies in Shenandoah County arrested and charged two men Wednesday with manufacturing methamphetamine out of their homes in Edinburg.

Authorities said Patrick W. Cameron, 21, of 304 Sara Ann Ave., and Nathan Scott Berry, 20, of 437 Cave Spring Lane, were released Thursday, each on $5,000 secured bond. Their next court date is scheduled for Nov. 19.

Maj. Scott Proctor of the Shenandoah County Sheriff's Office said the two defendants were arrested at the end of an investigation conducted by officers with the sheriff's office and Strasburg police.

Proctor said investigators had conducted controlled drug buys prior to the arrests and had received information that Cameron and Berry were cooking methamphetamine. Investigators obtained search warrants for both their residences and took them into custody between 10 p.m. and midnight on Oct. 31 at Cameron's home.

Proctor said items seized during the search warrants included "some type of rifle or shotgun," materials for cooking methamphetamine and "some waste product" linked to the drug's production.

He said investigators also found a one-year-old child at Berry's residence and called in representatives from the county's department of social services to "become involved in that part of the incident."

Proctor declined to provide further information on what actions, if any, authorities took to help the child.

Proctor said the investigation is continuing and other charges could follow as a result of evidence found in executing the search warrant.
