An Orma, Calhoun man has been arrested at the Spencer WalMart for allegedly trying to buy cold medicine for the manufacturing of meth, according to Spencer Newspapers.

Jason Levi White, 18, was charged by chief deputy Todd Cole of the Roane sheriff's department with conspiracy to operate a clandestine drug lab.

White, according to the complaint, made and then attempted to make purchases two days running.

After the pharmacist raised suspicion, police went to White's vehicle where they found the cold medicine from a previous day.

In the vehicle was White's girlfriend, his mother, an infant and another juvenile.

White had a strong odor of meth, and both he and his girlfriend admitted the pills were for another person making meth, reports Spencer Newspapers.

White was charged in Roane magistrate court.

In another Roane case, a Big Bend man identified as Paul Hunter, who was originally sentenced to the Anthony Center for the possession of fentanyl was returned by that center for rules violations.

Hunter was sentenced 1-15 in prison, but will spend his sentence on home confinement in Calhoun, with monitoring by the Roane County Day Report Center.
