After their arrest, Waggoner and Hellmich spoke with sheriff’s deputies and told them Kilgore had been staying at the home they shared for approximately a week. Hellmich told investigators Kilgore had brought methamphetamine materials into their home, and that she had asked Waggoner to tell Kilgore to remove all of those materials from their residence.
Waggoner told police he had complied with Hellmich’s request and had asked Kilgore to remove the methamphetamine materials from their house. Waggoner told investigators he believed the guest had complied with those wishes.
Waggoner also claimed he and Hellmich picked up Kilgore Saturday night and that Kilgore had placed a bag containing a small methamphetamine laboratory in the trunk of their vehicle.
Kilgore declined to speak with investigators and requested an attorney, according to a police report.
Sheriff Allen complimented his deputies on their work in shutting down the alleged methamphetamine laboratory during a conversation with the Daily News Monday. The sheriff urged county residents to be aware and notify authorities of suspicious activity when it is discovered.
All three suspects remained incarcerated in the Decatur County Jail at press time Tuesday. A commercial bond in the amount of $50,000 had been set for each following court appearances Tuesday morning.
