At 3:15 in the afternoon on New Year’s Day, Murfreesboro Police officers received information that a person was in the process of making meth at 806 Ewing Blvd. Officers say when they got to the address they saw a white male identified as 40-year old Kenneth Franklin Anderson, Jr. outside the apartment unit A. The report shows police asked if they could step inside the rental unit and Anderson obliged inviting the police in.
Prior to police responding, they were tipped off that two individuals at the address were in the process of making meth using the one pot method. Using the one-pot method means that meth cooks can make meth in one sealed container which is generally flipped upside-down to cause the reaction needed to turn several toxic ingredients into meth. This method generally produces meth in smaller quantity, but doesn’t make it any less dangerous.
Anderson was arrested and charged with the initiation of meth and also faces several other charges. Arrested with Anderson was 35-year old Jacqueline Lynn Barrett.
