Search warrant lists items seized at suspected meth lab

By Joe Beck

Law enforcement officials seized a long list of items linked to the manufacture of methamphetamine when they executed a search warrant at a New Market residence, according to documents filed in Shenandoah County Circuit Court.

Four defendants, three men and a 17-year-old male, were arrested and charged with manufacturing and conspiring to manufacture methamphetamine.

The three men charged are: Michael Scott McDaniel, 23, of 400 Lone Pine Drive, Timberville; Joshua Charles Stottlemyer, 23, of 726 Walker Road, Mount Jackson; and Kenneth Charles Ritchie, 19, of 11239 Turleytown Road, Linville.

All three adults are being held without bail in the Shenandoah County jail.

The list of items seized at 9457 S. Congress St. on Sept. 22 includes scales, smoking devices, a black bag containing methamphetamine waste by-product, muriatic acid and a bag containing various chemicals.

The residence is described as a second floor apartment in back of the building with a wooden deck facing Congress Street.

An affidavit attached to the search warrant states that a concerned citizen told a New Market police officer he or she had obtained methamphetamine at the residence.

The citizen also noticed "a small methamphetamine lab in the bathroom along with a can of Coleman fuel, a water bottle with an off color liquid with crystals in it, a glass jar with a white substance and the odor of chemicals about the apartment," the affidavit states.
