Officers arrived at 658 Walker Circle at 5:52 p.m. on Monday to arrest Brian Joseph Glenn Pridmore, 38, on charges of harassment and domestic violence. When they arrived at Pridmore’s residence, police said a man believed to be Pridmore fled into the woods surrounding the home. Outside the home, the officers saw materials that led them to suspect drugs were being produced inside the home.
“In plain view outside was evidence of methamphetamine manufacturing,” Dora Police Chief John Duchock said. “Also in plain view inside, we found evidence of methamphetamine manufacturing.”
In addition to the items in plain view, Dora police obtained a consent to search from the occupant of the home, Tabitha Cato, who was also arrested on outstanding warrants.
They found more materials used to make meth inside the home and three labs inside drink bottles that were currently active.
Firemen from Dora Fire and Rescue responded to the scene to assist in the recovery of the volatile mixtures and materials.
Duchock said he had been in contact with Walker County District Attorney Bill Adair who will decide on the specific charges related to possession and manufacturing of meth.
Pridmore is currently out on bond from the Walker County Jail on similar charges. As of press time, Dora police were still attempting to locate Pridmore. Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts is asked to contact Dora police at 205-648-3211.
