  The arrests shut down two operations that manufactured and distributed methamphetamine and other drugs in Chatham, Bryan, Bulloch and Effingham counties.  CNT director Everette Ragan said investigation into activities of members of the Basham family was begun in 2011 after officers received complaints they were suspected of drug activities.   


  Among those arrested were 36 year old Thomas Randall Basham and his 26 year old wife Jaclyn. 


  While out on bond Basham and another man, 31 year old Marcus Lee Lindsey, were arrested in Effingham County in March and charged with possession of pseudoephedrine.


  Basham’s brother, 33 year old Roger Basham of Pembroke, and Hope Mitchell, address unlisted, were arrested by Richmond Hill Police in February of this year and charged with manufacturing meth, following the seizure of a meth lab there.


  Investigation lead to other family members and others who were reportedly conspiring to buy large amounts of pseudoephedrine and products to manufacture meth.


  Others arrested are Sharon Mulkey Basham, 62, of Pembroke; David Allen Barnard, 46, of Pembroke; Betty Deckard, 42, of Brooklet; Christopher Thomas Davis, 29, of Guyton; Heather Nicole Dunn, 22, of Pooler; Kimberly Marie Carney, 28, of Savannah; and Lisa Renee Williams, 33, also of Savannah.
