Two Men Charged For Operating Meth Lab

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

Bail is set at $50,000 each for two men arrested in connection with a meth lab explosion that occurred in Bozeman Tuesday evening.

"It was determined that the cause of the explosion was a direct fail of a "one pot" methamphetamine," said Erin Murphy, Gallatin County Attorney's Office.

Jesse James Moore, 31 and Devon Wayne Arnaud, 26 appeared in court on Friday morning charged with felony unlawful operation of a clandestine laboratory.

Court documents state, officers found items in a room at the Continental Motor Inn on East Main in Bozeman consistent with manufacturing meth.

After investigating, the Missouri River Drug Task Force determined there was a small meth lab inside the hotel room where defense attorney's say Moore was living.

"He was living at the motel and he claims that his roll at the operation was very minimal," said Annie DeWolf, Public Defender.

Documents state that while Anraud was being interviewed, he also admitted to allowing his residence to be used to manufacture meth.

"The state believes that this defendant is a very serious threat to the community," said Murphy.

The Missouri River Drug Task Force said it is not unusual to see small meth labs in the county.

This is one of 11 small meth labs that the task force has investigated in the last three years.

Judge Bryan Adams set both Moore's and Arnaud's bond at $50,000.

Arnaud has also been arrested on a probation violation. His bond for that violation was set at one-hundred thousand dollars in Justice court on Wednesday.
