The laboratory was located in a large portable building approximately eight miles east of Blanco. Pardaen said.
“This group of individuals had been
producing methamphetamines about two years,” he added.
Earl Van Ostrand operated a Texaco station in Blanco and was also a lieutenant in the Blanco Volunteer Fire Department.
He and the two women were taken before U.S. Magistrate Jamie Boyd in San Antonio, with Earl Van Ostrand and Inscore ordered held on $50,000 bond.
Judy Van Ostrand was released on $15,000 personal recognizance bond because of a
medical condition and because of her children, ages 9 and 6, Pardaen said.
The charges filed were manufacture of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute and conspiracy to possess a controlled substance with intent to distribute.
The agent said there may be more arrests stemming from the raid as well.
