An Orange County man, Thomas George Hogue, has recently been charged with setting up a methamphetamine lab in the home where he lived with his bedridden, 87-year-old aunt as her caretaker.
Police discovered the meth lab while conducting a welfare check at the request of the woman's granddaughter, who had not heard from her for three months. Hogue was not present when the police arrived, so they waited at the home and arrested him upon his return.
Hogue has been charged with one felony count each of Manufacturing Methamphetamine and Elder and Dependent Adult Abuse. He faces up to eight years in state prison if convicted of both charges.
