Two more arrested after meth lab found in Treasure Island

Deputies arrested two more men Wednesday after a methamphetamine lab was found in a Treasure Island apartment complex.

John Fultz, 49, and Logan Jafferis, 33, were arrested Wednesday on charges of conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine. Both lived in a unit at 511 Sandy Hook Road with Phillip Blake Pike, 32.

On Tuesday morning, Treasure Island police responded to a suspicious-person call and located Pike, who ran away from officers and into his garage. Police followed him there and found chemicals used to produce the drug. They backed out and called in deputies from the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office. After several hours of attempts to coax Pike out of the apartment, he voluntarily surrendered.

Authorities evacuated several units of the apartment complex for hours and arrested Pike on charges of conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine, attempt to manufacture methamphetamine, possession of hydrocodone and possession of marijuana.

Pike, Jafferis and Fultz were booked into the Pinellas County Jail, where they remained Wednesday in lieu of $9,000, $5,000 and $5,000 bail, respectively.
