Ricky ComerOn Friday, February 7, 2014, the Putnam County Sheriff's Office received information that individuals were cooking methamphetamine at the end of Comer Road in Bardin. Deputies responded to the area and approached the dead end of Comer Road on foot. As they approached they observed a white male, later identified as Ricky Wesley Comer, standing next to a green Chevrolet truck with the passenger side door open. Deputies stood in the shadows and observed Comer walking away from the truck and towards a light pole holding what appeared to be a one pot methamphetamine lab in his hand. Comer was observed holding the object up to the light and shaking it.
 
As deputies approached Comer while identifying themselves, Comer took the object and put it behind his back and began back peddling to the truck where he then threw the object into the truck. Comer then grabbed a beer that was sitting on the tool box and acted like that was what he had in his hand. After briefly struggling with the deputies, Comer was detained and secured in a patrol car. Deputies then looked into the truck where Comer threw the object and an active one pot methamphetamine lab and chemicals used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine were discovered.
 
Members of the Methamphetamine Response Unit at the Putnam County Sheriff's Office responded to the scene and rendered the one pot methamphetamine lab safe.  
 
Comer was placed under arrest and booked into the Putnam County Jail on the following charges:
 
1. Production of methamphetamine
2. Possession of Listed Chemicals
3. Possession of drug paraphernalia
4. Resisting without violence
5. Maintaining a drug vehicle
 
His bond was set at $9,020.00
