A federal grand jury indicted Shane Isbell and Megan Cunningham on May 9 based on evidence that the two were operating a methamphetamine operation in Tioga and Bradford counties. The two are jointly charged with conspiracy to distribute controlled substances and distribution of a controlled substance. The case will be heard by the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania in Williamsport.

The two allegedly began conspiring in early 2009 to distribute at least 50 grams of meth or similar substances. They allegedly obtained meth precursors such as lithium batteries, pseudoephedrine pills, ether, coffee filters and anhydrous ammonia. The ingredients were allegedly gathered throughout the state and distilled into meth in Tioga and Bradford counties. Meth is a Schedule II controlled substance under federal law.

Isbell also faces the charge of possessing a firearm during a drug trafficking crime, namely a sawed off shotgun.

For further details on this and other federal meth cases, read the Gazette on Wednesday, May 29.
