South County pair in court on drug charges
Two South County residents were in Justice Court Wednesday for their first appearance on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, but their cases were continued.
Avryl Murlyne Monson, 37, of Holbrook Junction, and Vance Winston, 32, of the same address, were both charged after a Gardnerville storage shed was discovered July 18 full of the dangerous chemicals used to make methamphetamine.
Monson is charged with suspicion of manufacturing a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and being under the influence of a controlled substance.
Winston is charged with suspicion of trafficking, manufacturing, possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Both attorneys asked their clients’ first appearance be continued until next Wednesday and Winston waived his preliminary hearing. Monson’s preliminary hearing is Thursday.
Monson’s attorney Mark Jackson asked that Monson’s bail be reduced from $75,000 to between $5,000-$10,000.
Jackson said he felt the amount of bail was excessive, especially in light of the fact that Monson requires medical attention for pain suffered from a accident.
Judge Jim EnEarl reduced her bond to $50,000, but said he expected the District Attorney’s Office to ask for it to be raised next week when more charges are expected to be filed against Monson.
