MOUNTAIN HOME, AR (KAIT) – An Arkansas state program that tracks the purchase of pseudoephedrine helped Baxter County Sheriff's deputies arrest four people on meth making charges.

On Wednesday, January 19, deputies arrested 26-year-old Bradley Ray DeWeese,  25-year-old Stephenie Marie Vendrimmelen and 23-year-old Bobby Paul Gilley of Mountain Home . 

Using information from the state's "Leads on Labs" program, officers with the sheriff's office along with the Mountain Home Police Department, Arkansas State Police and the 14th Judicial Drug Task Force obtained a search warrant for a home on County Road 99.

When officers executed the warrant, according to the sheriff's report, investigators found "numerous items used in the manufacture of methamphetamine."  DeWeese and Vandrimmelen were taken into custody without incident.

A B.O.L.O. was broadcast to area law enforcement officers to pick up and arrest Gilley, who was not at the home.  Approximately two hours later, Gilley arrived at the residence.  When he tried to drive off officers arrested him.  A passenger in Gilley's car, 23-year-old Adam Hugh Hess of Midway, was arrested on misdemeanor charges.

DeWeese and Gilley were out of jail on bond of $25,000 from an arrest in October.  They are currently awaiting trial on charges of conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine.

Sheriff John Montgomery says the investigation is ongoing.

The suspects are charged with:

Bradley Ray DeWeese, Mountain Home:  Manufacturing of a controlled substance- methamphetamine,

Stephenie Marie Vandrimmelen, Mountain Home:  Manufacturing of a controlled substance- methamphetamine

Bobby Paul Gilley, Mountain Home:  Manufacturing of a controlled substance- methamphetamine and Possession of a controlled substance-methamphetamine

Adam Hugh Hess, Midway:  Possession of a controlled substance-marijuana and Possession of an instrument of crime-smoking pipe.
