According to a press release from the Sedalia police Department’s S.T.I.N.G. Unit, on Friday, January the 2nd 2015 Patrol Officers with the Sedalia Police Department were dispatched to a residence in the 200 block of East 24th in reference to drug related items found by the homeowner while cleaning out a basement rental area after the tenant had moved out. The owner of the property found five “One Pot Methamphetamine Labs” often referred to as “Shake and Bake” Methamphetamine Labs. The press release states this manner of manufacturing Methamphetamine is inexpensive, but extremely dangerous, and the trash produced is considered as hazardous material. The owner also found four meth lab components and precursors necessary to create a functional meth lab.

The Press release states Detectives with the Sedalia Police Department’s Drug Enforcement Unit collected the lab items and component items. Members of the Sedalia Fire Department responded to the scene and collected the hazardous material produced by the lab for disposal.

Following an investigation 37-year-old Wayne R. Archambault of Sedalia was arrested and transported to the Pettis County Jail on charges of manufacturing a controlled substance (Meth), Possession of a controlled substance (Meth), and Possession of drug paraphernalia. At the time of the press release Arschambault was on 24-hour hold with bond and court date to be determined.

UPDATE: In addition to the information contained in the Press Release Archambault was found to have an active/extraditable warrant from Cincinnati Ohio for receiving stolen property. A fugitive from justice warrant was applied for so he could be extradited back to Ohio for adjudication of the charge.
