According to court documents on file at the Clay County Courthouse, the Clay County Prosecutor's Office presented charging allegations for Gary A. Brownfield, 59, Christopher Raymond Ziemendorf, 39, and Robin L. Lennox, 39, involving five formal felony charges as evidence of the need for their further incarceration Tuesday.
Although preliminary details are sketchy due to the ongoing investigation by members of the Clay County Sheriff's Department, officials confirmed the suspects were taken into custody during a traffic stop early Saturday morning.
During the course of the arrests and subsequent search of the van, officers allegedly located more than 3 grams of methamphetamine, a glass smoking pipe and several syringes along with various chemical reagents or precursors used in the manufacture of methamphetamine, including camp stove fuel, hydrochloride pills and lithium batteries.
On Tuesday, all three suspects were formally charged with felony dealing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, possession of chemical reagents or precursors with intent to manufacture a controlled substance and possession of paraphernalia, while individually Ziemendorf and Lennox were charged with visiting a common nuisance and Brownfield was charged with maintaining a common nuisance. Each was assessed a $25,000 cash bond (with no 10 percent allowed) and remanded into the custody of jail officials at the Clay County Justice Center to await further court proceedings.
