A group of seven Grayson County residents are being charged with methamphetamine manufacturing and other charges in two separate cases which recently went before the Grayson County Circuit Court.

The first incidence allegedly occurred on May 21 of this year, when two women and one man were found to be manufacturing the illegal drug known as meth.

Court documents accuse 24-year-old Daniel W. Stevenson of Pat Toussey Road in Caneyville, 24-year-old Tiffany L. Logsdon of Caneyville Road in Caneyville, and 43-year-old Jennifer Forsyth of Sunrise Drive in Leitchfield of manufacturing methamphetamine, first offense, and knowingly possessing anhydrous ammonia with the intent to manufacturing methamphetamine in the first degree.

Additionally, both Stevenson and Logsdon were charged with fleeing or evading police in a motor vehicle in the first degree, fleeing or evading police on foot in the second degree, and being persistent felony offenders.

The pair allegedly disobeyed a police officers’ direction to stop the motor vehicle that they were in, “thereby creating a substantial risk of serious injury or death to persons or property” and then proceeded to attempt to flee from officers on foot.

Logsdon was on shock probation for an unrelated conviction at the time of the incident, and Stevenson at the time had outstanding parole violation warrants, according to court paperwork.

All three of the individuals were noted in court documents as having a “criminal history” and being a “danger to community.”

The Commonwealth recommended that Forsyth be held on a $10,000 bond, with 25 percent being cash; Logsdon was recommended a $10,000 bond, with half being cash; and Stevenson was recommended a $25,000 cash bond. The Commonwealth further recommended that they each undergo random drug screening and have no contact with their co-defendants in the case.

Both Logsdon and Stevenson were also indicted on charges stemming from a June 4 incident during which they, along with 40-year-old Jeffery T. Sanderson and 38-year-old Jeremy S. Sanders, both of West Maple Street in Caneyville, were charged with manufacturing methamphetamine.

Stevenson faced additional charges of possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) in the first degree, possession of drug paraphernalia, and being a persistent felony offender in the first degree.

Logsdon faced additional charges of possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) in the first degree, possession of drug paraphernalia, hindering prosecution or apprehension in the second degree, and being a persistent felony offender in the first degree.

Jeffery Sanders and Jeremy Sanders were also charged with hindering prosecution or apprehension in the second degree, and Jeremy Sanders additionally was charged with unlawful transaction with a minor in the first degree.

Court documents accuse the four of having been manufacturing meth, and Sanders, Sanders and Logsdon purportedly attempted to hinder “the apprehension, prosecution, conviction or punishment of Stevenson,” who was being sought in connection with a criminal offense.

Furthermore, Jeremy Sanders was accused of attempting to cause a female under the age of 18 “to engage in illegal control substance activity.”

Jeremy and Jeffery Sanders were each recommended a $10,000 cash bond, while Logsdon was recommended a $15,000 cash bond.

Documents note Stevenson as being a “flight risk” and the Commonwealth recommended that he be held on a $25,000 cash bond.
