Meth Lab Shut Down on Riberolle St.

Meth lab discovered by probation officer - offender flees the scene

 

by Home Page Staff - November 21, 2016

At around 10:40 PM on Friday, November 18, the Wellsboro Police Department was called to 7 Riberolle Street in Wellsboro by a Tioga County Probation Officer. Law enforcement responded to the discovery of a methamphetamine lab that was being set up in the home. Cooking of the methamphetamine had not begun at the time of the arrest, therefore no hazardous materials were present in the process. The probation officers discovered the lab upon interviewing the residents on probation. One of the offenders fled the scene and was later found trying to escape from the rooftop of a home on Queen Street.

“All of a sudden there was a large crash on the roof,” said Queen Street resident, Dave Moore. “I thought it was an animal or a tree limb at first. I went outside with a flash light and discovered a gentleman standing on our back garage roof.”

In an attempt to hide, the offender, Shawn Hurd of Tioga, had snuck into the garage and hid inside the Moore family’s Subaru Forester. Upon being discovered he entered the house through the backdoor and made his way out one of the upstairs bedrooms onto the garage roof.

“I just wanted him off the roof and out of that area,” Moore stated. “I didn’t have my cell phone on me to call the police because I lent it to my daughter. I wanted to have eyes on him the whole time. He asked for a ladder, but I didn’t want to get too close to him. I offered him to jump in the bushes or on the trampoline or lower himself down to a 3-foot drop. But he decided…he was going to go on the electrical lines.”

Hurd continued to delay his descent until Moore entered the home to call law enforcement, at which time Hurd attempted to climb away from the house across the electrical lines. The lines ripped from the side of the house, dropping Hurd and he ran off leaving his shoes behind in the process. He was shortly caught by the Wellsboro Police Department.

The six individuals involved have been arrested for the production of narcotics and are now held at the Tioga County Prison.

The offenders involved include:
Star Marie Evans-Shutter (from Wellsboro)
Chance Lee Gilbert (from Wellsboro)
Courtney Jo Marbaker (from Wellsboro)
Austin Lane Short (from Lawrenceville, PA)
Dylan Michael Hairston (from Wellsboro)
Shawn Steven Hurd (from Tioga, PA)

Chief Bodine encourages our community to remain vigilant.

“We’re a safe community, we really are.” says Bodine. “Secure your doors, make sure you take that extra precaution. And be vigilant – we all know who doesn’t belong in our neighborhoods, so to speak. If anyone is acting suspicious, report it. Call your local PD’s and let us know what’s happening around your homes so we can address it.”

Special thanks to our guests, Chief of Police Jim Bodine and Wellsboro resident Dave Moore.
