DELMONT — A Delmont couple has been arrested for manufacturing methamphetamines.
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office arrested Brent Loneman, 26, and Devon Loneman, 27, Tuesday on several charges, including manufacturing and possession of a Schedule 2 substance, and keeping a place where drugs are used, sold or stored.
Manufacturing and possession are felony charges that each carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine. Keeping a place for drugs is also a felony, and it carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
They are also charged with three misdemeanors — ingesting an intoxicating substance, possession of 2 ounces or less of marijuana, and possession of marijuana paraphernalia.
The Lonemans have two younger-than-school-age children who were living in the home.
Douglas County State’s Attorney Craig Parkhurst said Sheriff Jon Coler and Deputy Neal Moad have been investigating this case since November, but he declined to comment on events leading up to the arrests, because the investigation is ongoing.
The Lonemans are being held at the Charles Mix County Jail in Lake Andes and are scheduled for a court appearance in February.
