Following Wednesday night’s bust of a meth lab in Pembroke, authorities have announced that Rodney Shuman, 44, is wanted in connection with trafficking methamphetamine and possessing a fire arm by a convicted felon. He is also charged with two counts of aggravated assault, according to Bryan County Sheriff’s Office Detective Donnie Thomas.
Shuman's, son Tyler Shuman, was arrested at their Harveytown Road home, where deputies responding to a call of shots fired discovered an alleged methamphetamine-manufacturing operation in Rodney Shuman's mother’s garage around 10 p.m.
The deputy, who noticed the smell the lab was giving off, discovered the operation while conducting interviews relating to an earlier incident, during which Rodney Shuman reportedly pointed a pistol at his daughter-in-law, Blake Shuman.
She then went to leave, but when she was backing up, Rodney Shuman allegedly fired a pistol once, striking her vehicle. Blake Shuman was not injured. Rodney Shuman fled before authorities arrived and has not been seen since Wednesday night.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s Southeastern Drug Task Force is investigating the alleged lab to determine what, exactly, was being manufactured.
Tyler Shuman has been charged with possession of methamphetamine and the possession of tools for the commission of a crime.
