Three Hernando residents are facing multiple drug charges, with bond for each set at $155,500.
Jacob Stuebs, 21, William Isaac Leonard, 29, and Denise Robin Stuebs, 29, all of North McGee Drive, were nabbed Monday evening and charged with several counts including possession of methamphetamine and the manufacture and conspiracy to manufacture the drug.
When investigators executed a search warrant on the residence, they discovered all manner of materials associated with the manufacture and use of meth, according to the report.
Investigators also noticed burn marks on the grass in the backyard that are consistent with drips from the noxious mix of chemicals in “one-pot cooks.”
According to arrest records, when investigators entered the home’s master bedroom, which is reportedly shared by Leonard and Denise Stuebs, they found a large red container full of syringes that tested positive for meth. In a shed, investigators also found one-pot cooks, lithium battery casings, Coleman fuel cans and other things used in the manufacture of meth. Investigators also found a few HCI gas generators.
HCl gas is commonly used for production of meth. It is often derived by mixing sulfuric acid such as commercial drain cleaner or hydrochloric acid (muriatic acid) and salt in a reaction container, referred to as an HCl generator.
According to the report, all three suspects admitted to roles in the manufacture and use of meth. They were arrested and transported to the Citrus County Detention Center.
