Police say their investigation shows that the same peoplewho were cooking the drugs were using them for themselves. They already arrested nine people related to this case and they are looking for seven others.

One of the men involved in the ring, Thomas Wilkinson will go to court on February 18. Jerry Whitt its still wanted on charges of aggravated participation in cooking the meth. There is a big chance those accused already left the area.
