MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) - A man who won a conservation group's permission to live at a nature preserve faces drug charges for allegedly operating a methamphetamine lab at the site.
Fifty-four-year-old James Kevin Dalton was arrested last week at the Red-tail Conservancy's Munsee Woods property southeast of Muncie. He remained jailed without bond Thursday on charges of dealing in meth, possession of meth and possession of meth precursors.
Red-tail Conservancy director Barry Banks tells The Star Press the Muncie-based land trust had allowed Dalton to live with his family at Munsee Woods, a former Girl Scout camp that has several buildings. Banks says Dalton was serving as the site' "caretaker/tenant."
He says Dalton's family has been evicted from the old Girl Scout camp building where the meth precursors were allegedly found.
