FARMINGTON, Del. - Delaware State Police arrested three men after information was received into the manufacturing of methamphetamine (meth) at a home west of Farmington.

On Sunday around 3:30 a.m., troopers responded to the 2000 block of Hickman Road, Farmington from a report of subjects manufacturing methamphetamine in a trailer behind a home. Upon arrival troopers said they saw equipment and component mixtures of the manufacturing stages of meth. They also said they detected a strong odor of ammonia.

Delaware police contacted the three suspects in the trailer when they observed an active “one-pot” on the floor. At that time, the subjects were detained. Members of the Delaware State Police Kent County Drug Unit and the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control arrived at the scene and confirmed that a “one-pot” meth manufacturing lab was present. After a consent to search was obtained, police collected and seized components used to manufacture meth along with key ingredients in making meth.

Brian W. Holben, 21 of Farmington, Hunter C. Stockman, 22 of Bridgeville and Lathan Verry, 21 of Greenwood were arrested without incident and transported to Troop 3, Camden where they were formally charged with operating a clandestine laboratory and conspiracy second degree. The suspects were arraigned  and committed to James T. Vaugh Correctional Center in default of $6,000.00 secured bond.

Hickman Road was closed for approximately three hours until the scene was deemed safe. No evacuations were ordered.
