Clarion County, PA – Four people from Clarion County are facing felony charges after police say they were manufacturing meth.

34-year-old Jeremy Carey of Clarion, 28-year-old Rebecca McAninch of Sligo, 22-year-old Roy Anthony of Rimersburg, and 27-year-old Jacob Vasbinder of Rimersburg have all been charged.

All four of them remain in the Clarion County Jail, awaiting preliminary hearings on July 3.

Carey, McAninch, Anthony, and Vasbinder are all facing charges of conspiracy of manufacturing drugs, along with knowingly possessing phenylpropanolamine and ephedrine, two of the ingredients used to make methamphetamine.

The four Clarion County residents had allegedly been using a “one-pot” method to create enough meth to use for themselves. They were caught after police were tipped off that they had been purchasing a variety of allergy medicines, which can be used to make meth.

Some of the more disturbing ingredients that are sometimes used to make the drug: lithium batteries and camping fuel, both of which can literally burn the inside of your body and can be deadly.
