Eades was arrested for allegedly operating a meth lab in his home with intentions to sell finished meth.
Eads was lodged in the South Central Regional Jail. He was arraigned on the charge and bond was set at $150,000.
The residence was secured until a hazmat crew could decontaminate the house.
Ravenswood Police Chief Lance Morrison stated, “As I have always said, I’m extremely proud of my men. They have made it a personal agenda to go after the drug dealers in this town. If you are a drug dealer and think for one second that my men don’t know about it or don’t know who you are, you are sadly mistaken. The best thing you can do is get out. You are not welcome here and we are coming after you.”
