A Hickman County man was charged after more than $16,000 of property from Mayfield Consumer Products (MCP) was found at his residence last Thursday.
Hickman County Sheriff Ben Nativadad initially arrested Christopher Meyers, 46, on methamphetamine trafficking charges, but Meyers faces additional charges out of Graves County for Theft by Unlawful Taking — over $10,000.
The Graves County Sheriff’s Office received a request from MCP candle manufacturing plant to investigate the thefts on Oct. 6.
Graves County Sheriff’s deputies went to a residence located on Cooley Road in Hickman County, with the assistance of the Hickman County Sheriff’s Office. Information received led them to Meyers’ residence. Meyers was a former employee of MCP.
Deputies recovered more than $16,000 worth of stolen property belonging to MCP, which product, tools, and equipment.
It was then that the methamphetamine was also discovered.
