A Roane County man has been charged a second time with manufacturing of methamphetamine, this time in Lincoln County. Larry G. Evans, 62, of Griffithsville, was operating a lab at his residence in Lincoln County, according to authorities.

The Huntington Violent Crimes/Drug Task Force and a large number of law enforcement officers swooped down on Evan's mobile home in Roane on May 23, after which he reportedly admitted to manufacturing crank.

Authorities confiscated equipment and a drug this week, which appeared to be in partial stages of manufacture.

He is currently lodged in South Central Regional Jail under $51,000 bond and could face up to 40 years in jail.
