Madison County Sheriff Ben Stewart reports that on Saturday the 6th day of April, 2013 Cpl. Mike Maurice stopped a Chevy Sedan driven by Rhonda Crump, 41, on Jim Clark Road for unlawful speed. Upon walking up to the Chevy Sedan Cpl. Maurice detected the odor of burnt marijuana.

The Chevy was also occupied by Keri Exler, 26, Joshua Langille, 31 and Robert Phillips, 43.

Cpl. Maurice requested assistance from Sgt. Dennis Pitts who arrived a short time later. After completing the enforcement action Cpl. Maurice asked Crump for permission to search the vehicle for illegal contraband. Crump granted permission to search the sedan.
During a probable cause / consent search Cpl. Maurice located all the required chemicals to manufacture methamphetamine in the trunk of the car.

Due to the volatile nature of cooking or manufacturing methamphetamine the sedan was treated as a hazardous material scene and Jim Clark Road was temporarily blocked off for safety. A specialized response team was dispatched to dismantle the mobile meth lab and render the area safe.

All four occupants were arrested without further incident and charged as the following:
