Saucier said both Kenmar and Neal fled on foot upon seeing the investigators. However, Cuevas stayed in the vehicle. A search warrant was secured for the residence and Neal’s vehicle. A search of the home found multiple precursor chemicals and a bottle of methamphetamine oil, which is a byproduct of the manufacture of the drug. Multiple precursor chemicals also were found in the trunk of Neal’s vehicle.

Cuevas was charged with possession of precursor chemicals and manufacture of methamphetamine. Neal and Kenmar are wanted by the Sheriff’s Department on the same charges. Any information about their whereabouts should be directed to Investigator Rob Williams by calling 601-403-2500.
