A man charged with a litany of crimes after police responded to a domestic dispute and discovered a methamphetamine operation waived his preliminary hearing in Centre County court on Wednesday.
Duane Lee Custred Jr., 45, of Centre Hall, was charged with a felony possession of a firearm and misdemeanor counts of terroristic threats, simple assault, harassment and reckless endangerment.
The charges stem from 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 clandestine lab response team was notified and arrived on the scene, seizing the items and materials used in the meth production.
