Kim Thomas Charged In Connection With Meth Lab Bust
A second person has been arrested and charged in connection to a meth lab bust that happened last week.
Forty-eight year old Kim Thomas is facing one charge of calndestine laboratory operations and one charge of possession of a controlled substance.
Investigators with the Casper Police Department say on Friday June 20th, officers and special agents with the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation, executed a search warrant on a house on North Center Street.
They found materials similar to a meth lab bust that happened last week on Spruce Street, near Natrona County High School, as well as a white powder residue.
When questioned, Thomas admitted purchasing meth making materials for both himself and 25-year old Steven Salazar.
Part of the deal was that Thomas would get some meth, in exchange for providing some of the materials.
Thomas’s girlfriend told investigators she had also purchased some supplies for Thomas, and knew Thomas had tried to make meth, but was unsuccessful many times.
Thomas is being held on $25,000 bond awaiting trial and could face up to 20 years in prison on the calndestine laboratory operations charge, if convicted.
Salazar is facing similar charges connected to the case and is also awaiting trial.
