Burglar Caught Cooking Meth in Jonesboro Home

DECEMBER 18, 2004 - Posted at 4:21 p.m. CST

 

JONESBORO, AR - Officials say a burglar who had broken into a Jonesboro-area home ransacked the premises and then began preparing a batch of methamphetamine before he was caught by sheriff's deputies.

A drug dog handled by Craighead County deputies found the suspect, 27-year-old Christopher Shawn Gower, hiding under a pile of clothes in the home.

The homeowner called police early Thursday morning when he arrived home and saw someone inside his house.

Officials say the burglar opened the Christmas presents from under the tree.  Investigators say it is not often that they see an intruder take the time to try to work up a batch of meth.
