Upshur County Meth Bust

Authorities in Upshur County have uncovered what they say is the largest meth manufacturing operation seen in East Texas in more than 15 years.
At around 10:00 pm Saturday night, Sheriff Deputies were called to a home on FM 49, just West of Gilmer. There they found more than 400 grams of methamphetamine, 3/4 of a gallon of pure meth oil valued at $70,000, and numerous rooms full of manufacturing equipment.
They also arrested 32-year-old Greg Russell and charged him with possession of meth and manufacturing of meth.
Russell remains in the Upshur County Jail tonight on two separate $100,000 bonds.
Drug Enforcement Agents from Dallas and Tyler assisted in the bust along with an environmental clean-up team out of Texarkana.
