Man Hiding Out at Camp Ground Arrested on Drug Charges
A Quincy man was arrested hiding out at Whispering Oaks Camp Ground near Mendon Monday night. Rodney L. Belden, 44, was located in a camper and taken into custody.
Belden was wanted on an Adams County warrant for possession of methamphetamine precursors. Belden was found with a shake and bake methamphetamine laboratory when agents searched the camper.
He also has a pending charge of Aggravated Unlawful Participation in Methamphetamine Production, after a search warrant was served at Belden’s residence, 623 Oak in Quincy in February. A shake and bake laboratory was seized during that search. Belden’s wife, Melissa L. Belden, 44, is currently out on bond from the Oak Street search.
