Meth Cases Continue To Crop Up

Meth cases continue to crop up in the Cookeville area. A December 6th court date has been set for two Putnam County residents arrested by the sheriff's department for promoting the manufacture of meth. The suspects are identified as 35-year-old Jason Alan Hall of Silver Point and 21-year-old Kristina Rasor of Cookeville. They were charged after authorities say they saw the ingredients used to make meth "in plain view" as the couple were parked in a vehicle on East Spring Street. Among those items were pseudoephedrine pills, lighter fluid, and lithium batteries.  Some state lawmakers are considering a law that would require people to have a prescription to purchase Sudafed-type cold medicine.  Current law requires that it be kept behind a counter and that the person buying it show ID and sign a register.
