EARLY, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – Two suspects have been indicted for an arson involving a meth lab in Early.

Richard Crawford was arrested and charged with Arson in connection to the fire at a mobile home on the 200 block of Live Oak Street in November of 2017. A second suspect, who has not been identified, is still at large. 

A press release from the Early Police Department states that during the investigation over the next few months, “witnesses informed officers that the subjects responsible for the fire had been inside cooking methamphetamine in a small meth lab.” 

“The suspects had also stripped copper wiring from inside the house over time,” the press release reveals. 

Both suspects involved in this case were indicted by a Brown County Grand Jury in April.
