Two people have been arrested and charged with felony possession of chemicals with the intent to manufacture methamphetamine in Thayer.

According to a probable cause statement from the Oregon County Prosecutors office at Alton, Tiffany Jewell, 22, of Thayer and Charles Pawloski, 33, of Springfield, were arrested and charged April 25.

Thayer police said they received a call from a person who said there was a meth lab behind a home at the Cozort Trailer Resort and they investigated the call.

According to Thayer Police Officer Michael Bunting they found a diaper box filled with several different items including a jar with pills soaking in liquid, phosphorus, coffee filters, a gallon bottle of clear liquid and clear tubing.

Bunting said he and another officer hid near where the diaper box was found and saw the pair drive up and get the diaper box. They then took them into custody.

There were two children belonging to Jewell in the vehicle at the time of their arrest. The children were turned over to the Division of Child Services.

Pawloski posted a $10,000 bond and has a court date set for June 4. Jewell is in the Oregon County Jail at Alton with a bond set at $10,000.

Other Oregon County arrests include Justin Rivel, 20, of Thayer who was issued a ticket on a charge of being a minor in possession of intoxicants.

Kenny Ray Duncan, 47, of Alton was given a ticket for drinking an alcoholic beverage while driving on County Road 204.

Shelby Todd Shaw, 24, of Koshkonong was given a ticket in Thayer on a charge of supplying alcohol to a minor.
