Florida Man Faces Meth Charges in Pike County Missouri
(EOLIA)-- A Florida man faces five felony charges after a drug bust Tuesday in Pike County Missouri.
31-year-old George Mathes of Altha Florida is accused of drug trafficking and four counts of possession of chemicals with intent to make a controlled substance.
An Eolia convenience store attendant told authorities the suspect and a woman in his car were harassing her as well as motorists in the parking lot of the business. A deputy reported finding meth and chemicals used to make the illegal drug in the car after the two consented to a search. Some of the numerous materials found were sent to the Missouri Highway Patrol crime lab for forensic examination.
Judge David Ash ordered Mathes held on 100 thousand dollars cash-only bond. The woman driver has not been charged.
