What:
Deputies have arrested two suspects for manufacturing and trafficking in methamphetamine. The two were sought for the operation of a meth-lab in April of 2012. When deputies went to make the arrest, they discovered the pair was operating what appeared to be a meth-lab once again.

When:
Deputies responded to the Palm Harbor residence at about 12:02 p.m. on Tuesday, October 23, 2012.

Where:
Deputies responded to a private residence located at 2680 Peterborough Court in Palm Harbor.

Why/How:
On April 9, 2012, deputies responded to a domestic violence call at the above listed address (See Release #12-071). According to deputies 36-year-old Shiloh Sladon, was throwing chemicals at his live-in girlfriend Pamela Therrien and became physically violent towards her. While at the scene deputies discovered chemicals at the location and suspected a meth-lab operation. Sladon was arrested at that time for domestic violence by strangulation.

A sample of the chemicals were sent to the lab for testing; and were recently returned positive for methamphetamine.

Just after noon today, October 23, 2012, deputies responded to the Palm Harbor home with probable cause to arrest  Sladon and Therrien. Upon their arrival at the home, deputies asked Sladon if there was another lab in the home. Sladon told deputies there was an active lab in a backroom of the home.

Deputies secured the residence, and in an abundance of caution, evacuated the two residences on either side, as well as the one across the street.

Narcotics detectives were summoned to the scene to conduct their investigation.

Sladon and Therrien were arrested for manufacturing methamphetamine and trafficking in methamphetamine in connection with the April incident; and were subsequently transported to the Pinellas County Jail. 

Deputies initially responded to the home along with Code Enforcement to placard the home due to neighbor  complaints and concerns over potential health and safety violations.

Booking photos of the suspects will be available, once the booking process is complete.

The investigation continues.
