Officers make meth arrests

A man and two women were arrested after two methamphetamine labs were discovered in Evans.

At about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, narcotics officers from the Columbia County Sheriff's Office arrested Wayne Scott Fernandez, 43, of the 3100 block of Scenic Drive in Augusta; Cheree Renee Granade, 29, of 100 block of Kaschwina Court in Grovetown; and Jamie Cloud Brosious, 37, of the 100 block of Pond View in Evans, on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, according to a statement from sheriff's Capt. Steve Morris.

Ms. Brosious faces a second charge of manufacturing methamphetamine and a charge of possession of methamphetamine, according to a jail attendant.

Capt. Morris said the first lab was found on Pond View in Riverwood Plantation subdivision, which had been under investigation since October.

Ms. Brosious was arrested in connection with the lab found at Pond View, where she lives, he said.

Mr. Fernandez and Ms. Granade were arrested because a lab was found in the back of their truck as they were leaving Ms. Brosious' home, Capt. Morris said.

No bond was set for Ms. Granade or Mr. Fernandez on Wednesday. A jail attendant said bonds totaling $12,700 had been set on two charges for Ms. Brosious but that a third charge had no bond set.
