Live Oak —
A Live Oak man has been arrested for manufacturing methamphetamine within the city limits of Live Oak, according to a press release from the Live Oak Police Department.
Reports show that Andrew James Britt, 24, 1218 2nd Street, was arrested after police discovered he was operating a meth lab in a camper.
According to the press release, officers responded to a residence on 2nd Street on March 26, in response to a report of suspicious activity. Upon arriving, authorities were told by the complainant that someone had been living in a camper in their yard without permission.
When police entered the camper, they found Britt asleep, along with several suspicious items around him, the press release stated. Based on experience, it appeared to police that Britt was using the camper as a methamphetamine manufacturing laboratory, authorities say.
“Britt later confirmed that he was living in the camper illegally and had been preparing meth inside the camper,” LOPD Detective Justin Bates stated in the press release.
Britt was arrested and has been charged with possession of methamphetamine and manufacturing methamphetamine.
