Men arrested at Priceville hotel

Two Morgan County men were arrested at Days Inn hotel in Priceville Wed., July 15.

Boe Don Rusie, 31, and Joshua Laron Kelso, 30, were taken into custody after Morgan County Drug Task Force agents responded to reports of possible methamphetamine manufacture activities in room 212. After obtaining a search warrant, the agents found a one-pot methamphetamine lab in the bathroom, methamphetamine oil, sulfuric acid, lithium batteries and reagents.

The occupants of the surrounding rooms were evacuated, and they were later examined by the Priceville Fire Department after they complained of headaches.

Rusie and Kelso were decontaminated and taken to the Morgan County Jail, each with a bond total of $510,000. Both men were charged with unlawful manufacture of a controlled substance – methamphetamine – first degree, trafficking in methamphetamine and unlawful possession of felony drug paraphernalia. Kelso had been released from jail in Lawrence County in February 2015 after serving a six-year sentence for drug charges. He was also out on bond for a recent drug-related arrest.
