State police took a man into custody on Monday and subsequently discovered a methamphetamine manufacturing operation.
Duane Lee Custred Jr., 45, of Centre Hall, was arrested after a domestic dispute in which he threatened to shoot and kill multiple family members, according to state police at Rockview.
After his arrest, police found a loaded .22 caliber revolver in his possession. Custred is a convicted felon and barred from owning or possessing firearms.
Upon further investigation, police said they found that he was making methamphetamines in a shed on the property. The state police’s clandestine lab response team was notified and arrived on the scene, seizing the items and materials used in the meth production.
Custred was charged with a slate of crimes, including felony possession of a firearm and misdemeanor counts of terroristic threats, simple assault, harassment and reckless endangerment. He was placed in Centre County Correctional Facility in lieu of $100,000 straight bail.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 30.
