Two Mt. Eden men have been indicted for making meth by Spencer County’s grand jury.

Joshua Sherrard, of 4135 Mill Road, and Christopher Yates, of 5616 Mill Road, will both be tried for manufacturing methamphetamine after Sheriff’s Deputy Gordon Miles allegedly found them in possession of two chemicals and/or pieces of equipment used to make the illegal substance in March. If convicted of the charge, the defendants could serve a sentence of 10 to 20 years in prison.

Sherrad and Yates also face felony indictments of trafficking and possession of methamphetamine from the same incident.

Sherrard will alone be tried on the additional charge of tampering with physical evidence.

In other grand jury decisions:

• Joseph C. Chesser, of 8500 Mt. Washington Road, has been indicted on one count of criminal mischief for an incident that allegedly occurred on March 23.

Reports indicate that Chesser intentionally damaged property with a monetary loss of $1,000 or more.

• Robert H. Collins was indicted for flagrant non-support for allegedly failing to provide support consistently for his minor child between January 1998 and May 2007.
