reddinger-mugsBROOKVILLE, Pa. (EYT) – Additional details have been released surrounding the arrest of two Brookville residents facing felony charges related to the manufacturing of methamphetamine.

Jefferson County District Attorney Jeffrey Burkett announced Tuesday afternoon that 45-year-old Tiffany Ann Reddinger and 44-year-old Daniel Lee Reddinger, both of 1227 McManigle Road, Brookville, are facing charges in connection with the manufacturing of methamphetamine and the purchase of precursors related to the manufacturing of methamphetamine.

The charges were filed after a search warrant was executed at their residence revealing an active “one-pot” methamphetamine lab.

Jefferson County Drug Task Force agents Andrew Turnbull and Mickey Stormer initiated the investigation in December of 2015. Through surveillance and data collection, investigators were able to obtain a search warrant for the Reddinger residence.

According to a criminal complaint filed by Officer Stormer, it was determined that Daniel and Tiffany Reddinger purchased several precursors necessary to manufacture methamphetamine. The purchases were allegedly made by both individuals on multiple occasions throughout 2016.

These precursors were often purchased at known locations in Jefferson County; the items included pseudoephedrine, liquid petroleum fuel, ammonium nitrate, sulfuric acid, sodium hydroxide, and lithium.

On many occasions these precursors were purchased using a MasterCard Credit Card issued to Daniel L. Reddinger.

On Monday, around 9:00 p.m., members of the Jefferson County Drug Task Force, assisted by members of the Pennsylvania State Police, served the search warrant and discovered an active “one-pot” lab within the residence.

The Pennsylvania State Police Clandestine Laboratory Response Team assisted at the scene to collect evidence and to render the active lab safe.

Jefferson County EMS and Sigel Volunteer Fire Company assisted at the scene with fire and medical stand-by readiness.

Tiffany Reddinger was arrested at the scene. She faces the following charges:

  • Conspiracy – Possession Red Phosphorus, etc. w/ Intent to Manufacture a Controlled Substance, Felony
  • Possession Red Phosphorus, etc. w/ Intent to Manufacture a Controlled Substance, Felony
  • Manufacture etc. Controlled Substance, Misdemeanor
  • Knowingly Possessing Ephedrine, Misdemeanor
  • Use/Possession Of Drug Paraphernalia, Misdemeanor

She was lodged in the Jefferson County Jail in lieu of $100,000.00 monetary bail.

Task Force members, assisted by the Brookville Police Department, took Daniel Reddinger into custody along Allegheny Boulevard after a traffic stop was initiated around 11:05 p.m.

When he was taken into police custody, Reddinger was allegedly in possession of the MasterCard allegedly used to purchase precursors used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine.

Daniel Reddinger faces the following charges:

  • Conspiracy – Possession Red Phosphorus, etc. w/ Intent to Manufacture a Controlled Substance, Felony
  • Possession Red Phosphorus, etc. w/ Intent to Manufacture a Controlled Substance, Felony, Felony

He was lodged in the Jefferson County Jail in lieu of $50,000.00 monetary bail.

Both defendants face preliminary hearings on May 5 before District Judge Gregory M. Bazylak.

“Once again, I am very pleased by the professionalism and dedication of our task force agents,” said Burkett. “The officers patiently worked on this case for months, and then, when actionable information came to them, they acted swiftly and decisively. I am proud to be working with them.”
