Man Accused Of Stealing Meth-Making Materials From Store
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A man was arrested for shoplifting meth-making materials from a grocery store in Hermitage.
Employees at the Kroger on Lebanon Pike noticed 24-year-old Dylon Stewart leave the store without paying for the items in his shopping bag. When loss prevention agents tried to stop him, he allegedly pushed them and elbowed them in the abdomen area.
When officers responded, they found lithium batteries, two packs of decongestant, a mixing bowl, water bottles, iodized salt and a cold pack—which are all common ingredients to make methamphetamine.
During his arrest, Stewart allegedly admitted to police that he had a drug problem.
Stewart was charged with theft, two counts of assault, and promotion of meth manufacture.
