Mt. Olive man arrested for marijuana growing, meth lab

MT. OLIVE — A Mt. Olive man has been arrested for manufacturing methamphetamine and growing marijuana inside his home.

According to Jefferson County Chief Deputy Sheriff Randy Christian, Thomas Randall McCarty was arrested early Sunday morning by deputies at his home in the 1500 block of Brookside Road.

At about 1 a.m., the sheriff’s office was tipped off anonymously that a marijuana was being grown and meth was being made inside the home. Deputies went to the house, where McCarty’s son answered the door.

The son said his parents were not at home; he admitted marijuana was being grown, but said he knew nothing of a meth lab. Deputies went inside and found eight marijuana plants, along with lighting and other equipment meant for growing the plants. The deputies also found an inactive meth lab.

McCarty arrived at the house while deputies were inside. After being interviewed, he admitted to the marijuana and meth operation.

McCarty, 45, was arrested for unlawful manufacture of a controlled substance. He posted bond of $30,000 and was released from the Jefferson County Jail.
