PUTNAM COUNTY, Fla. -- A man is facing charges after he allegedly tried to hide a one-pot methamphetamine lab in a truck on Friday.
According to a release from the Putnam County Sheriff's Office, Ricky Wesley Comer was arrested and booked into the Putnam County Jail on charges of:
- Production of methamphetamine
- Maintaining a drug vehicle
- Possession of listed chemicals
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
- Resisting without violence
Deputies responded to Comer Road in Bardin on reports of methamphetamine production. While there, they observed Ricky Comer holding and shaking what appeared to be a one-pot meth lab.
When deputies approached Ricky Comer, he allegedly threw the pot into a truck he was standing next to and grabbed a beer can to make it appear as if that's what he was holding.

Comer's bond was set at $9,020.
