BOARDMAN, Ohio (WYTV) – Boardman Police charged three people with possessing supplies for the making of drugs Wednesday afternoon after a Wal-Mart worker reported a shoplifting incident, according to a police report.

Police charged Bethany Devine, 23, William Watt, 31 and Bradley Pitts, 55 with the possession of chemicals for the manufacture of drugs, a third-degree felony, the report stated. Police also charged Pitts and Watt with theft.

According to a police narrative in the report, Pitts and Watt grabbed lithium batteries from the Doral Drive store and walked out without paying for them. A Wal-Mart worker then asked the two to stop, the report states, but only Pitts did.

Pitts is quoted in the report as saying that he “was going to pay (Watt) $150 to make meth.”

Watt left the scene in a car that Devine was driving. Another officer pulled the car over on South Ave. and, after a police dog sniffed the area, searched the car and found what were described as meth-making materials.

The Wal-Mart worker also said that Pitts bought and later returned Coleman camping fuel. The report states that the fuel can be used in the making of meth.
