Lawrence County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a man following a call to the See Meth Stop Meth tip line.
The man, Shannon Edward Hill, is in jail on drug charges. His father is charged with threatening an officer.
Deputies got a tip Hill was involved in the manufacturing and distribution of meth. Drug agents made an undercover buy from Hill and arrested him at a family member’s home.
They say Hill’s father, Mickey Joe Hill, phoned the undercover agent and made death threats. He was arrested and charged with making a terrorist threat and intimidating a witness.
