BAXTER COUNTY, AR (KAIT) – A Yellville man was arrested after police say he was trying to make meth at a buddy's house.

According to Baxter County Police, Travis Ray Wren was arrested at a home in the Midway area after police say he purchased all the items necessary to manufacture meth.

Police say Wren had purchased Pseudoephedrine, starting fluid, acetone, salt, dry ice, a gasoline jug, and other items commonly used in the manufacturing process. The search of video surveillance at several local businesses showed Mr. Wren making the purchases on Thursday, February 18.

Police say Wren then took all the items to a home in Midway. The owner of the home wasn't there at the time, and didn't know about the illegal activity.

Baxter County Police issued a B.O.L.O. (be on the lookout) and the Bull Shoals Police department located Wren and arrested him.

Wren faces criminal attempt to manufacture a controlled substance (meth), and unauthorized use of another person's property to facilitate certain crimes. Wren remains in the Baxter County Jail on a $25,000 bond on the meth charges, and was reprimanded without bond on a charge from the Department of Corrections Revocation out of Marion County, Arkansas.
