Charges of manufacturing a controlled substance were filed in magistrate court on Wednesday against three subjects arrested in connection with seized meth labs in Portales.

Manufacturing charges were filed against Cody Banister, 27, Brandy Rury, 24 and Troy Thompson, 29.

“The investigation is still ongoing and there could be additional arrests and charges filed,” Roosevelt County Sheriff’s Deputy Malin Parker said.

The trio were arrested on May 6 after officers seized the first of three meth labs at Banister’s residence at 137 Mesilla Park, officials said.
