Two Suspects Facing Charges of Making Meth

Jeremy Goforth

Brenda K. Meyer




In late September, 2010, the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office and the Coffey County Sheriff’s Office began investigating two rural Cherokee County residents for their possible involvement with drug activity in both counties.

As a result of those investigations, search warrants were executed in Coffey County, Kansas and at 8217 Southeast Grape Lane, in rural Galena.

Cherokee County narcotic investigators discovered a substantial, suspected methamphetamine laboratory during their search, along with other items associated with the manufacture of methamphetamine.

Brenda K. Meyer, 47, and 34 year-old Jeremy Goforth, both of the Grape Lane address, were arrested by Coffey County authorities on various narcotic related charges.

On December 8th, 2010, the two suspects were transported to the Cherokee County Jail to face charges here.

Both are being held in lieu of $75,000.00 bond and have been charged in Cherokee County District Court with Manufacturing a Controlled Substance, Possession of Precursor Chemicals with Intent to Manufacture a Controlled Substance, Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of Marijuana, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

They both are also being held on additional $100,000.00 bonds for Coffey County, Kansas.
