Bond denied to men charged with making meth

Posted: Updated:

Two men have been denied bond on Thursday in connection with methamphetamine charges.

On Wednesday, the Effingham County Sheriff's Office said it busted the largest meth operation in the county's history.

Daryl Westenbarger, 56, and Donald Wilt, 61, both of Guyton, have been charged with trafficking methamphetamine, manufacturing methamphetamine and possession of tools during the commission of a crime. The case has been referred to the superior court.

Authorities discovered 136 one-pot meth labs, 42 generators, several products to manufacture methamphetamine including camp fuel, pseudoephedrine and 150 lbs. of items testing positive for methamphetamine at a home on McLaws Road. Twenty-five lbs. of actual meth with a street value of about $10,000 was discovered during the operation, according to the sheriff's office. 

The meth making was all done within the house in the 2 liter Coke bottles, according to the Effingham County Sheriff's Office. Some of the one-pot labs were active at the time when investigators got inside. 

They're being held in the Effingham County Jail without bond.
