Officials with an area drug task force announced the arrest Wednesday of four people on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine in a Jacksonville home.

According to Capt. Chris Roberson, commander of the Calhoun Cleburne County Drug and Violent Crime Task Force, officials obtained a warrant Wednesday to search a home on the 400 block of Woodward Avenue.

Inside the home, task force members discovered an active meth lab and chemicals used to manufacture the drug.

Michael Edward McFry, 69; Terry Wayne McFry Jr., 25; Margie Rose Wright, 39; and Shawn Patrick Conner, 25, were charged with unlawful manufacturing of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Michael McFry faces an additional charge of possession of a controlled substance because officials found meth on him Roberson said.

According to Roberson, the Department of Human Resources became involved in the case after drug task workers found two teenagers – 14 and 15 – also living in the home.

According to Roberson, one of the teenagers was taken into custody by the Department of Human Resources and the other went to stay with a family member.

“There’s exposed wires everywhere and no refrigerator,” Roberson said about the home. “It’s unfit.”

All four adults were in the Calhoun County Jail on Wednesday evening. No bond had been set for any of the suspects, according to a jail worker.
