YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Three people were indicted Thursday on drug charges stemming from a June 3 shoplifting incident in Boardman.

William Watt, 31, Bradley Pitts, 55, and Bethany Devine, 23, each are facing one charge of illegal assembly or possession of chemicals for the manufacturing of drugs and theft.

According to a Boardman police report, Pitts and Watt grabbed lithium batteries from the Wal-Mart store on Doral Drive 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 Avenue 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.
